McGill Ridge Kamloops Apartment Blog 2021 Year in Review

It’s been a busy year for the McGill Ridge Kamloops apartment community and we’re ending the year with an update on our Phase 2 development, which is nearing completion, and a review of articles we published on the blog in 2021.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

First, our team at McGill Ridge Apartments would like to wish a heartfelt Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone, especially our wonderful tenants who are the heart of the community. We hope everyone has a great holiday and a healthy, prosperous 2022!

Phase 2 Nearing Completion: Purcell Building Renting in March 2022

Back in August, we published a blog post about Phase 2 progress. At that time, the third and final building, the Purcell Building, was still under construction. The building’s roof had been recently finished and suites were being drywalled. Now, the Purcell Building is nearing completion and will be available for rent starting in March 2022.

2021 Year in Review

In January, we published “Self-Guided Walking Tours Minutes from Our Kamloops BC Apartments”, which included a street mural tour, heritage and architecture tour, and five nearby parks.

In February, we published “Is Your Kamloops Apartment Near Shopping & Services? McGill Ridge is Close to Everything!”, which discussed how close McGill Ridge is close to everything you need for living comfortably in Kamloops. As we like to say, our apartments are “5-Minutes to Everywhere”.

In March, we published the first space-saving tips post of the year, “How to Create More Space in Your Kamloops Apartment”, which provided tips including wall-mounting your TV, lift and platform beds, and folding kitchen tables.

In April, we published “Top Reasons People Love Our Kamloops Apartments”. Among the reasons: new apartments are hard to find, convenient location, perfect for TRU students and people who work at or near TRU, and the many modern amenities included in our suites and buildings.

In May, we published “Kamloops Apartment Virtual Tours are Nearly Like Being There”, which discussed the value of Matterport tours which give potential renters an easy way to “walk through” an apartment from the comfort of their desktop, laptop, tablet or smartphone.

In August, we published our second of two posts about space saving, “Space Saving Tips for Kamloops Apartment Living”, which discussed using multi-functional living room furnishings with built-in storage, apartment-size furnishings, tall shelving, underbed storage, and sharing a rented storage locker with a friend.

In September, we published “Insuring the Contents of Your Kamloops Apartment”, which dispelled myths about apartment insurance, provided excellent reasons to have insurance, and linked to rental insurance educational information for consumers.

In October, we published “Supporting Businesses Near Our Kamloops Apartment Community”, which discussed the importance of getting out there safely, to help keep local businesses afloat during these troubled times.

In November, we published “2021 Christmas & Holiday Events Near Our Kamloops Apartments”, which included free or low-cost holiday events that’ll make your spirits bright. Most of the events take place in December and some run to early January, so be sure to check them out!
