Construction will begin this spring on the first 43 townhomes in Blatchford on the former City Centre Airport land, city officials announced Wednesday.
The new community's first residents are expected to move in by the end of the year, or the beginning of 2020.
Four builders joined city officials at the Growlery Brewery on Airport Road, across from the first stage of the Blatchford development, to announce plans for three- and four-bedroom homes.
Carbon Busters, Encore Master Builder, Mutti Homes and Ocheller by RedBrick are building four different styles of energy-efficient homes, all with secondary suites, in a bid to make the development more affordable for home buyers.
