South end envisioned as urban living ‘epicentre’

A neighbourhood in south Nanaimo could be on the verge of undergoing a major transformation.

Parkshore Projects Ltd. is proposing to build three separate residential development projects – which are being called Prospect, Evolve and Cornerstone – along a stretch of Haliburton Street between Finlayson and Milton streets.

The proposals come as construction on the company’s first development in Nanaimo, a five-storey condominium dubbed the Outlook, gets underway at 119 Haliburton St.

“Parkshore sees the neighbourhood as a prime area for redevelopment and higher density due to its waterfront views and proximity to the downtown core. ‘The state of the area is what really attracted us to it, combined with the view lines and how close it is to the urban centre”
