Construction has officially commenced for a new 75 unit, high quality, affordable housing development at 50 Martin Road in Bowmanville.
The demolition contractor has installed fencing to secure the site, site services have been capped and the existing dwelling has been removed. The construction of foundations are slated to begin as soon as approvals are received from the Municipality of Clarington and the Region of Durham. Project completion is scheduled for early 2019.
With views of Lake Ontario and ample retail opportunities close by, this fully accessible building will offer a mix of one and two-bedroom units to serve low-income seniors, low-income singles and couples, and persons with disabilities. The building has been designed to not only provide shelter to its residents, but to encourage a sense of community for tenants through an impressive social calendar of organized activities and common areas including a common room, library, outdoor BBQ area and pet spa. In addition, the developer has partnered with local community support organizations to facilitate easy access to important social service providers.
This project has been made possible by developer, New View Holdings Inc., in partnership with the Region of Durham and the Federal and Provincial Governments as part of the Investment in Affordable Housing program.
