The County of Simcoe has approved a 50-unit affordable housing project on donated land near Simcoe Road and Marshview Boulevard in Bradford West Gwillimbury.
“This project aligns with our 10-Year Affordable Housing and Homelessness Prevention Strategy, creating new affordable housing units in a high demand area of the County. Since the inception of this Strategy, our staff has been focused on the creation of affordable units that fit into our communities and address the needs of our residents.”– George Cornell, County of Simcoe Warden and Mayor of Tiny Township
The building will be within walking distance of the town’s future civic plaza, downtown commercial amenities, elementary schools, ample green space parks, and the GO station. It will have a high energy efficiency rating, incorporating passive house design elements to move more closely to a net-zero design.
“I am excited about this opportunity and the investment that the County is making to increase access to affordable housing in Bradford West Gwillimbury, and across Simcoe County. The Town is pleased to partner with the County on this important initiative and construct a building design that our residents can be proud of, while also addressing growing needs within our community.”– Rob Keffer, County Councillor (Human Services Business Section Chair) and Mayor of the Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury
Work is expected to begin early next year and be completed by the end of 2023.
