Cost out of whack

Re: Henderson expansion plan revealed (News Aug. 22).

I just read with interest that the new Henderson Park Recreation Centre expansion is going to cost $469,300 for some 830 square feet.

That sounds way out of line for constructions costs to me. So if Oak Bay were to build a 1,600 square foot house it would cost over $900,000 – before land costs – dang something sounds out of whack here.

Sounds like we are headed to some heavy cost over-runs now. Next we’ll hear that Oak Bay admin costs are rising as fast as the City of Victoria’s.
