No. 1 River Landing Sales Centre opens to enthusiastic crowds who were ready to buy

Update: And buy they did. Through a brief exchange with Dan Zakreski at CBC News, I learned that Dan had spoken with John Nasser this morning (November 21) and Mr. Nasser confirmed that a buyer had stepped forward for each of the 105 units they plan to build. Mind. Blown.

Nearly a decade after Remai Ventures put the brakes on plans to build a hotel on Parcel Y in Saskatoon, the No.1 River Landing sales centre opened last week to enthusiastic crowds eager to get a first peek at the project which finally seems poised for take off.

The sales and marketing effort began on Thursday, November 17 with a “Friends and Family Night” where a favoured few were given the first crack at reserving a unit in the 16 storey condominium complex that will, if all goes according to plan, be greeting its first occupants by May of 2019.

This initial launch was followed up with a REALTOR® and Client opening on Friday. By the time we arrived around 3:30 the place was packed wall to wall and the attending agents were suggesting that as many as 50 units were already spoken for, including the two penthouse suites each valued at more than $1-million dollars, and all of the largest corner units at the south side of the building. Meanwhile, dozens of prospective buyers held a place in line to see if their chosen plan was still available, and what the final price might be. The project will consist of 105 condominiums, the majority between 476 and 1152 square feet in size.

The sales centre opened to the public on Saturday and Sunday for “by appointment only” presentations. According to a representative of the project, more than 600 people had registered for these early opportunities.

It seems that the long wait for action on this site has finally come to an end and that No.1 River Landing shall soon be gracing the river’s edge, most likely fully occupied. In fact, the chatter on twitter suggests they’ve already sold out.

I mean, what took so long?
