Willowgrove News-Spring 2013

As a Saskatoon real estate agent I am always being asked about what is happening in the different neighbourhoods in Saskatoon. I am a resident of Willowgrove and have been for 3 years, prior to that it was Arbor Creek and Silverspring. I am always excited to see new businesses popping up in our area and am impressed at the variety we have. There are lots of little boutique shops such as Frakas, Tryst, Jules and Lace, Argyle, etc and it is so nice to be able to shop in these locally owned and operated boutiques than having to drive downtown.

The neighbourhood of Willowgrove continues to grow but there aren’t anymore lots for sale in Willowgrove. This is unfortunate as I would love to build again and in this area. The most notable construction at the moment is of the schools as it seems to be getting bigger and bigger each day. Everything seems to be on track for a Fall 2014 opening of the new schools in Willowgrove. Across from the schools there is also some construction for the buildings that will surround the town square. I don’t know what businesses are going there yet but am looking forward to hearing hopefully soon.

Another big question that everyone is asking is what is the large construction site on the corner of McOrmand and Attridge? We have seen them digging for months and not many people actually know what is going on there. It is actually part of a tunneling project to install new storm sewer and sanitary sewer along McOrmand Drive from Attridge Drive to south of Highway 5. An access shaft is required here to tie in the sewers to the existing sewer network and allow removal of the tunneling equipment when the tunnel is finished. The shaft will remain in place while the project is underway but once it is fully done there will be less activity here.

Well that is your quick update from your trusted Saskatoon real estate agent! If you are looking to sell your house in Saskatoon and would like to discuss my services I would be happy to meet with you as this is a great time to sell your house or condo. The market is steady right now. It is also a great time to buy as we are in a balanced real estate market in Saskatoon.
