Following up on the theme of our last article, it would appear that progress at The Vermillion has been at a standstill now for several months. Recent photos on our Forum highlight this fact, the prefabricated project by Red Leaf Developments, looking to have made little to no gains since at least April.

A closer look reveals the dilapidated state of the build site, with the protective tarps in tatters, and the prefabricated wall panels looking a little worse for wear. While progress had been slow during the spring, it seems that there has been no activity whatsoever in recent months, the build site abandoned.

Located in Queen Mary Park at the corner of 116 St NW and 106 Ave NW, The Vermillion, if, or when, completed, will be home to upwards of 100 residents spread across 63 units. Distinctive for its castle-like appearance, the 6-storey project will have a mix of 1-, 2-, and 3-bedroom suites, some of which will come in a 2-storey configuration.

While there has been little news of late, it is still hoped that the project will be completed in the near future. As-is, The Vermillion, in its current state appears more like a castle ruin, than a home. Let us keep our fingers crossed for the latter!

SkyriseEdmonton will be sure to return to this project as progress continues. For more information, check out the associated Database file and Forum thread, and as always, feel free to join the conversation in the comments section below.
