Three-Rivers — Even if the winter has seemed endless, the building in Trois-Rivières has experienced a spring thaw in march, with a value of permits issued exceeded $ 60 million compared to less than $ 17 million for the corresponding month in 2017. Result? The results are two times higher than those of last year, for the first quarter, or nearly 77 million dollars since the start of 2018, compared to just over $ 33 million, from January to march of last year.

Furthermore, not later than the last week, the first shovelful of earth has taken place.
Already, thirty condo units have been sold. Condo 3 1/2, 4 1/2 and 5 1/2 vary of 249 $ 500 to$ 1.1 Million. At the top of this price bracket, the two units appear to be$ 1.1 Million, of which one has already been sold.
Then, the expansion of the Centre conferences and events interactive has resulted in the issuance of a permit for the construction of a value which is close to 12 million dollars. It reminds us that this project of the real estate Company G3R corresponds to a total investment of$ 48 million . Its opening is planned in the course of the summer.
Finally, a building permit with a value of $ 1.5 million was issued for the renovation of the arena Jerome-Cotnoir, while for the foundations of the future coliseum, the permit concerned of the work estimated at $600,000.
