A housing project in the northwest end of Portage la Prairie is moving along and is expected to wrap up soon.
Chris Bures, of CHB Developments Inc., was at the site of his recent development, known as the North Ward Project, located on Fourth Street N.W. near Fifth Avenue West on Friday.
He is currently developing eight homes, with four residences in the near-completion stage.
Bures purchased the land around the Portage School Division building two years ago to develop the property. His full project consisted of a 10-lot subdivision - with two smaller lots and eight larger ones.
Among the eight homes still being worked on, four of these single-family homes that are close to completion have already been sold.
All eight homes are expected to be complete in the next three months.
"It's been a very good project and well received in the community," said Bures. "We've had a great run and a good winter to build."
