A residential-commercial development is moving forward on the Bedford waterfront.
Provident Developments is constructing Dockside Waterfront Drive which consists of two new buildings with retail space and condominiums adjacent to 200 Waterfront Drive.
The Waterfront Development Corporation Ltd.(WDCL) and Provident Developments are also working together to create enhanced public spaces around the new development.
"Our partnership with Provident builds on a private sector investment to create public facilities in Bedford," said Colin MacLean president and CEO, Waterfront Development Corporation Ltd. "WDCL is dedicated to realizing our vision of developing animated waterfront destinations to distinguish us among world's greatest waterfronts."
"We are happy to be finishing phase one of the Dockside development, this is great for Provident and great for Bedford," said John Greenough, president Provident Developments. "Working with WDCL, we are including nice features to encourage the community use of the waterfront."
The facilities for public use include an expansion of the Harbourwalk Trail, new spaces and improvements to the recreational marine facilities.
Construction began Feb. 21, and will temporarily affect access to the Harbourwalk Trail, but people will be provided with an alternate route.
Information about the development will be posted on WDCL's website www.my-waterfront.ca, and the Provident Developments website www.providentdevelopments.com.
