Construction of a condominium development in Napanee, Ont., has come to a halt.
There’s been no activity at the Gibbard District condominium site for several weeks, aside from a security service that drops by daily to make sure the site is secure.
Michael Nobes, the general manager of growth and expansion with the town of Greater Napanee, stated in an email that the developer, Doornekamp Construction, halted work because of rising labour and material costs.
