Pine­hurst Apart­ments com­plex un­der con­struc­tion in New Mi­nas

The pres­i­dent of a com­pany de­vel­op­ing a multi-unit res­i­den­tial build­ing in New Mi­nas doesn’t think it will take long to fill up once it opens later this year.

Noel Ta­iani, pres­i­dent of Par­sons Green De­vel­op­ments, said he an­tic­i­pates that con­struc­tion of Pine­hurst Apart­ments will be com­pleted some­time this com­ing sum­mer. Fram­ing is ex­pected to con­clude within the next two weeks and work on the build­ing in­te­rior will be­gin in Fe­bru­ary if all goes as planned.

He said it’s a great project and the com­pleted units would be “gor­geous.” Pine­hurst Apart­ments is a sin­gle, 39-unit apart­ment build­ing un­der con­struc­tion on ap­prox­i­mately two acres of land just off Com­mer­cial Street, be­hind the Flower Cart and next to the KenWo Golf and Coun­try Club.

The four-storey build­ing — five in­clud­ing the un­der­ground park­ing and stor­age level — is be­ing built un­der a de­vel­op­ment agree­ment with the County of Kings. The rent for a one-bed­room apart­ment will be be­tween $1,035 and $1,200 a month while a two-bed­room will cost be­tween $1,260 and $1,305 monthly. Ta­iani said the rent for com­pa­ra­ble units in Hal­i­fax would be in ex­cess of $2,000.

“These are def­i­nitely lux­ury apart­ments,” Ta­iani said. “It’s re­ally tak­ing the rental avail­abil­ity or projects that are in that part of the prov­ince up a cou­ple notches, I’d say.”

Apart­ments and bal­conies will be “gen­er­ously sized,” all twobed­room apart­ments will in­clude two full bath­rooms, all apart­ments will in­clude six ap­pli­ances (range, fridge, dish­washer, mi­crowave, washer and dryer) and un­der­ground park­ing and stor­age lock­ers will be avail­able in the base­ment level.

The apart­ments will of­fer op­tional smart build­ing tech­nol­ogy and op­tional value-adding fea­tures de­signed for aging adults seek­ing to main­tain an in­de­pen­dent life­style.

Ta­iani said they were look­ing for de­vel­op­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties in this part of the Val­ley cor­ri­dor and his busi­ness part­ners brought the sub­ject site to his at­ten­tion. Ba­si­cally, the to­pog­ra­phy and lot fea­tures worked well for a multi-unit build­ing. A drop in the gra­di­ent of ap­prox­i­mately 11 feet across the lot made for rel­a­tively easy in­clu­sion of a base­ment park­ing level.

The de­vel­op­ment will mean that the prop­erty to the im­me­di­ate west of the golf course will be nicely land­scaped and the units will of­fer “phe­nom­e­nal” views of the vil­lage. The site is less than one kilo­me­tre away from the newly opened exit 11A High­way 101 Gran­ite Drive in­ter­change.

Ta­iani said they are ex­cited about the project and the in­di­ca­tion from early ex­pres­sions of in­ter­est is that it won’t take long for the build­ing to fill.

“We’ve had sev­eral dozen in­quires that we’re re­spond­ing to now,” Ta­iani said.
