Trade Developments Corp. President Scott Jendruck provided an update on his new four-storey mixed commercial and residential development project at Wednesday’s Chamber luncheon. The building, located on 100 Avenue east of the Shell gas station, combines 10,800 square feet of ground floor commercial space with 55 apartments for adults and seniors.
In his brief construction update, Jendruck said the main and second floor structural slab is completed, and they are currently working on the second floor framing. The third and fourth floors will follow in the next few weeks. They anticipate being open for September 2015.
Jendruck said he has been referring to the building as the Morinville Mixed Use Development for a long time and approached the community for suggestions in naming the building. Morinville resident Simonne Chevalier suggested the name 100 Block, to which the company added the word West. Jendruck said the name suited the mix of commercial space and premium apartments well. The “West” is a prelude to the future as a second identical building is planned for a future date at that location and would be called 100 Block East.
With the building set for fall occupancy, the company is now looking for tenants for the approximately 900 square foot apartments and retail or office space up to 11,000 square feet. Trade Developments Corp. has opened a rental centre at 9703A-100 Street, next to Horricks Family Dentistry. The centre will be open Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
