This fall, visitors to Crystal Beach near Waterfront Park will see the former Palmwood Hotel being transformed into a five story condominium with underground parking.

According to a newspaper article published earlier in February, the current lease holder has until Labour Day to run the restaurant at The Palmwood. Demolition and construction would begin shortly thereafter. Although the original plans included a first floor restaurant, the newer proposal just calls for “retail space” on the bottom floor.

So, this summer will be the last chance for people to pay their respects to an iconic Crystal Beach landmark. Oh, the memories!
