On April 22nd, 2008, between 9:30 and 10:00 in the morning, the Kitimat Fire Department was deployed to a Fire in an apartment building on Baxter. The building was not salvaged.
On April 29th, 2014, just over 6 years later, a ground breaking ceremony took place on the empty lot where 110 Baxter once stood. The Baxter Landing Project will add 36 units of townhouses will be built on the spot.
Pieter Kirchhoff of Kirchhoff Construction welcomed a small number of people to the event. Mayor Joanne Monaghan reminded everyone of the fire.
“Today, I am pleased that we are here on the happy occasion of ground-breaking for the Baxter Landing Project that will provide 36 residential units for our community,” said Monaghan. She welcomed Kerkhoff Construction to the community and wished them a safe construction.
The ground was broken. The project is estimated to take a little under a year to complete. The completion date is estimated in February, 2015. People are expected to move in around April or May of the same year. The units sold for about $280,000 to $310,000.
We were informed at the ground-breaking that most, if not all of the units had sold, mostly to people from out of town.READ ABOUT THE FIRE BY CLICKING HERE
