Raising the roof

Home builders
Irish roots
By Jordan Whitehouse

It’s taken former Newfoundland and Labrador Premier Danny Williams 20 years to begin seeing his dream of a 2,400-acre planned community on the outskirts of St. John’s become reality. Phase one of Galway (named after Williams’s mother’s maiden name to recognize the province’s ties to Ireland) is underway, which will see development of 250 acres of industrial and retail land and 100 acres of residential land by 2016.

When finished, the $5 billion development, about the size of Gander, will feature a 650,000 sq. ft. shopping centre and 5,000 new apartments, condos, townhomes and detached houses all built around a village square.

Phase one also includes Glencrest Industrial Centre: 87 acres of commercial, light and heavy industrial zoned space that's now available just off the Trans-Canada Highway.
