The general contractor building the eight-story, 149 room structure was also changed part way through the build.
Construction was nearly non-existent in 2016 and 2017 as the project's developer, Gisele MacDonald sorted out issues with the previous contractor, Man-Shield Construction. The dissolving of that relationship led to the hiring of Burmet Northern Limited as the new general contractor.
When completed, the hotel will feature 149 guest rooms, a lounge, restaurant and 6,500 square feet of conference space.
