Building Permits in Charlottetown

It’s a little hidden on the their website, but the City of Charlottetown does release a weekly report of building permits issued. It would be nice if they released the data in a more useful form than PDF, but I’m happy to see that it’s there at all, and don’t want to look a gift horse in the mouth.

Two items of late jump out:

  • 665 University Avenue (Shoppers Drug Mart) — Exterior shell & base building
  • 685 University Avenue (Subway) — Exterior shell & base building

I presume these are both for new buildings on the old Pizza Hut location near Sobey’s and Canadian Tire in West Royalty.

I tried writing a script to scrape the data out of the PDF files, but there’s just not enough consistency in the files to make this reliably possible.
