PROJECT COST:$150 MILLION
CONSTRUCTION PERIOD:COMMENCED: 2011 – Anticipated Completion Date: 2018
When finished, Friday Harbour will feature a 1,000 slip marina, an 18-hole golf course, 2,000 condominium and hotel residences, a nature preserve, shops, entertainment space, and more.
Additionally it is expected to bring approximately 1,000 permanent jobs along with millions in revenue from building permit fees, development charges, and tourist dollars.
Condrain’s portion of the project involves moving over 1,800,000 m3 of excavated material, and 4.5 km of retaining walls averaging 3.7 m in height, totalling over $150 million in infrastructure. 2 major pumping stations and a water reservoir are also projected.
The project is adjacent to Lake Simcoe where people often boat, fish, and swim, so its success thus far has come from a relationship between the community, and several world-class partners. Everyone involved is dedicated to unlocking Lake Simcoe’s potential while preserving and enhancing everything that makes it beautiful.
Condrain is working with all parties to protect wildlife and habitats, and to enhance water quality.
