1.1 On August 11th, Walkathon fundraising event was held at Garry Point Park with more than 70 brothers and sisters participating. A total amount of $ 18,554 was raised.
2. Project Schedule Update:
2.1 Our Development Permit Application had been approved with some conditions at COR “Development Permit Panel” meeting on 16 May 2018. COR’s Legal Department had provided information on the “Land Title” description and the preparation of “Letter of Credit” to our Lawyer. The relevant legal documents are already in preparation. Upon the satisfaction of the above conditions, COR will issue the formal “Development Permit” to us. At the same time, our Project Team’s professionals have completed the Construction Drawings required for BP Application and submitted to COR’s Engineering Departments for approval. If everything goes well, the estimated completion date is about 8 months after the issue of Building Permit (BP).
