1000M Groundbreaking Event

29 October 2019

Last week, our partners, investors, stakeholders, buyers, public officials and more came together for 1000M Groundbreaking. The day was a ceremonious celebration of the hard work that has led up to this moment, and the bright and exciting future that lies ahead. Thanks to everyone that came out to the event and that has shown their support this far – we can’t wait to share the next chapter to come.

 

Take an inside look at the exclusive and exciting event:

The ceremony took place in a tent on the future site of 1000M.

 

The stage held eight seats for the featured guests, with ceremonial shovels, hard hats and dirt awaiting the official groundbreaking dig.

Our speakers shared their thanks on stage, and spoke words of excitement about the significance of the upcoming development and growth that it will bring to the neighborhood and overall vitality of the city.
