Welcome to the Creemore Courier, MDM’s newsletter keeping you up to date with all the progress onsite at the Creemore Condos as well as sharing some local community highlights and news.
Concrete, Concrete And More Concrete!
Construction onsite is progressing smoothly and on schedule. All the concrete pad footings and piers have now been completed and slab-on-grade pours in the parkades will be taking place throughout January. Wall forming has progressed to the second floor on the West building and will continue advancing eastward over the coming weeks.
Our construction team worked diligently and safely throughout the harsh weather over the holiday period and we’re excited to share more of their progress very soon.
You might be wondering, why are the walls blue? These are the ICF blocks that comprise the majority of the structural walls of the building. ICF stands for Insulating Concrete Forms and this material has several advantages over conventional cast-in-place concrete methodology. ICF is easy to erect, remains in place after construction and offers superior acoustic and energy efficiency properties.
Embrace all that the winter season has to offer by taking in the events at the long running Winterama festival held in nearby New Lowell. The festival returns this year chock full of activities including snow sculpting, bed racing, and a fireworks display to name a few.
The festival runs from February 3rd to 5th and you can learn more by searching Sunnidale Winterama on Facebook and Instagram!
Elsewhere, on January 25th the Creemore Legion is hosting their annual Robbie Burns dinner. Doors open at 5:30 and tickets are $35 which includes a toast drink to celebrate the Scottish bard!
Promising Outlook For 2023 Market
Speaking to the Canadian Mortgage Professional outlet, RE/MAX Canada president Christopher Alexander expressed his optimism about the Canadian housing market for the coming year.
He cited the scarcity of inventory as being one of the primary positive signs for housing prices as the typical flood of new listings during a market downturn hasn’t eventuated. Good news for investors and owners alike!
