Logement social: Montréal achète un terrain à un demi-million dans Rosemont

MONTREAL – The City of Montreal purchases land for 564 000 $, more taxes, that she will resell at the same price to a community organization to build 45 new social housing units in the borough of Rosemont–La Petite-Patrie.

“We come to recover and secure a ground with a view to developing social housing. Therefore, the City acquires it and then pass it to a community agency that will be able to develop, so a potential project of 45 units,” said Wednesday, Robert Beaudry, head of the housing committee to the executive committee of the City of Montreal.

The City will also spend approximately $ 25,000 this year for various maintenance work on this property, including the withdrawal of deposits in the wild.

The vacant land of an area of 1639,5 square metres is bounded by 2nd and 4th avenues, as well as Gilford. It is close to the park of the Pelican and the parc Jean-Duceppe.
