New four-plex now going up

Work is progressing well on a four-plex going up on 54A Avenue and 51st Street close to the downtown core.

Work is progressing well on a four-plex going up on 54A Avenue and 51st Street close to the downtown core.

Steffen Olsen, owner of BRIX Construction is building the four-plex and is optimistic the building will be ready to go on the market by spring.

The four-plex is designed for the 55 plus age group and will have no basement or stairs and be located within walking distance of downtown. It is also close to the Rimbey Drop In Centre.

The condominiums will be 12 to 1,400 square feet and include a bedroom and a den. A heated garage is also part of the package.

Olsen has begun putting in water and sewer and putting footings down. Disruption to 51st Street was minimal while the water and sewer lines were being dug.

The developer is confident the homes will be sold quickly.

“There is a continual need for this type of accommodation in town,” he said.

Olsen built Kansas Ridge condominiums five years ago.
