A group of local developers plan to turn an abandoned 19th century factory in Napanee into a sustainable new condominium complex, CBC News reported.
The developers are proposing a 137-unit project at the Gibbard Furniture Company property. The proposal also includes six commercial spaces and a plaza.
They want to keep the old façade and building a condominium complex around it. Nate Doornekamp of Doornekamp Construction said they want to preserve the factory’s history while also creating something new. The project’s architect is Jaegap Chung.
The developers expect to begin construction in late 2019. The work would take about two years.
