Bridge Road Developments is confident that more Headingley and area seniors will want to remain in the community after downsizing by selling their homes.
Development and communications manager Melissa Groening said the company is now pre-selling the 36 units in Phase 2 of their Heartland Estates adult living complex in Headingley. However, not all the apartments are occupied in the first building that opened last fall, so the company won’t start construction of the second phase until the first is filled.
RM of Macdonald council recently granted a conditional use and variation application needed to pave the way for subdividing land in La Salle so Bridge Road can build a 24-unit 55+ complex next to PR 247, between the La Salle Community Centre and Community Fellowship’s church.
While this is good news, Groening said, development can’t go ahead until the municipality expands its lagoon, allowing sewer hook-up for the complex.
Macdonald CAO Tom Raine said La Salle lagoon expansion will be finished next year.
Groening said the company is no longer working on the proposed Country Grove Estates project in Elie.
