Currently under construction, Stage 2 includes seven residential development parcels. Five of these buildings are complete and occupied, and the last two towers are currently under construction. All remaining residential buildings in Stage 2 are being constructed by TF Cornerstone and will be complete by the second quarter of 2014. When complete, Stage 2 will include 3,200 units of housing.
In addition to the residential buildings, Stage 2 construction includes a public school, three additional acres of waterfront parkland, and new public streets and utilities (public storm and sanitary sewers, water lines, electric lines, etc.). Construction of all parkland, esplanade, roads and utilities will be complete by 2013.
