Gah just posted this link, looks like Millennium Water might need a bail out:
As the credit crisis south of the border begins to creep north, concerns are mounting over the impact it may already be having on construction of the athletes’ village for the 2010 Winter Games.
Last week, members of Vancouver’s city council held an emergency, in-camera meeting to get an update on the project. Much of the discussion revolved around the city’s obligation in the event the developer, Millennium Development Corp., can’t meet demands from the bank because of massive cost overruns, according to sources briefed on the meeting.
The best part? Even if you haven’t been speculating on Vancouver condos, now you get a chance to take part in the collapse since it looks like the City is on the hook for cost over-runs on this particular project. But don’t fret, the absolutely ‘worst case scenario’ at this point looks like a $100 million dollar bill for Vancouver tax payers.
