If you have not been in Pleasant Hill for a few weeks, it is certainly worth a visit! The progress on the cul-de-sac construction is immense. I took some photos while I was out on site this morning.
The 19th St. W cul-de-sac (pictured above) is nearing completion, with the sidewalks and curbing poured and the ground prepared for base gravel and asphalt.
I took this photo while standing the 19th St W cul-de-sac, looking north. You can just make out Columbian Place, the new seniors' residence, in the background of the picture. It is not hard to imagine the fantastic park space that will soon be created in this very space. Those trees that are healthy enough to preserve are protected, as you can see in the above pictures, with wooden stakes forming tree guards.
The above picture is taken looking south, from the new cul-de-sac at Columbian Place, just off 20th St. with the new St. Mary's Wellness and Education Centre in the background. The view in this picture illustrates the sharp grade differences within this site. Careful grading and landscaping of the enhanced park space will properly drain water to the catchbasin southeast of the area pictured in the above photograph. The final details in the design of Phase II Grace Adam Park are coming together. The tender will close in late June, and construction is due to commence, on schedule, in July!
SaskEnergy needs to bury the gas line a little deeper than it is currently located, so construction on this cul-de-sac at Columbian Place will halt for the next few weeks until their work has been completed and it is safe to resume construction. The construction crew will focus their efforts on completing the 19th St. W cul-de-sac and come back to Columbian Place in due course.
Some of the ASL crew were hard at work this morning. They were clearly enjoying their work and taking pride in their progress. Thanks ASL, the work is coming along very nicely indeed!
Other things to watch for this summer include decks at the townhouses in the Pleasant Hill Solar Village and the neighbourhood entrance sign in the southwest corner of the project area, just north of the railway tracks. To be continued...
Another two sales in the Pleasant Hill Solar Village, the snow has melted and construction is well underway at Columbian Place and 19th St!
It is happening now and so far things are on track and progressing smoothly. Currently the storm and sewer infrastructure is being laid, following which the cul-de-sacs will be created. The Saskatoon Light and Power pole has been relocated as required to accommodate the construction, and the fence at Columbian Place is also being relocated for the same reasons. We will see some of the overhead wiring buried too. There will be much to report over the next couple of months, so I will be providing more regular updates.
Take a look at the show suite in Parkview Green too! This unit has an amazing view of the new park area, the school and the tot lot!
