Hotel work waiting on permits

The Sunshine Inn Executive Suites development will front on Hwy16 beside Kalum Tire in Terrace, B.C.

Preliminary work started on a hotel project in late spring has since halted because not all of the permits were granted.

The Sunshine Inn Executive Suites development, which will front on Hwy16 right beside Kalum Tire is to be five storeys tall and have 100 units and the top floor is to contain condo-style residences.

“Work started before a building permit was obtained,” a statement from a city hall official indicated last week.

But Alisa Thompson now says revised drawings were received and that crews should start soon on installing water, sanitary and storm services.

That work will take place on the back end of the property which borders Lazelle Ave. just past the Terrace Bowling Alley.

“We anticipate the permit and foundation construction should start soon now,” said Thompson.

Also needed for the final building permit is for the development owner to get homeowner warranty registration for the 13 strata condo units.

The Sunshine Inn Executive Suites developer is Kim Tran from Smithers who has locations in Smithers, Houston and Burns Lake.

The building will be wood-framed and could very well be the tallest structure of its kind to be built here.

The provincial building code was changed in 2009 to allow wooden structures to be six storeys tall.

Tran purchased the property in early 2013 and has been working on the plans since.
