Wa­ter and sewer work started at Sum­mer­side re­sort prop­erty

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - THE ISLAND - BY COLIN MACLEAN +063/"- 1*0/&&3

The Ocean View Re­sort and Golf is tak­ing an­other step for­ward.

The multi-million dol­lar pro­ject’s pro­po­nent, Sean Liu, has awarded a con­tract to Cur­ran and Briggs Ltd. to con­nect the main re­sort build­ing to the city’s wa­ter and sewer sup­ply.

Work re­cently got un­der­way.

A spokes­woman for Liu in­di­cated that once the prop­erty is hooked into the city’s wa­ter and sewer, work on the inside of the build­ing can be­gin. Sig­nif­i­cant work to the ex­te­rior has al­ready been com­pleted.

This marks the first work at the re­sort in many months as Liu and his con­trac­tors have been fo­cus­ing their ef­fort on his sec­ond ma­jor in­vest­ment in the area, the for­mer Sum­mer­side Golf and Coun­try Club. Liu pur­chased the golf course, in part with a $900,000 loan guar­an­tee from the City of Sum­mer­side, in 2016.

The re­sort (formerly known as the Dy­nasty Spa and briefly as the Prince Alex Re­sort) and golf course ad­join, and Liu had planned to make them part of the same com­plex. Ren­o­va­tion work for the golf course and its club­house and restau­rant has been on­go­ing for more than a year but is mostly com­pleted, for now.
