The redevelopment of the Cavendish Mall property has been a priority dossier for City Council as we move forward on our agenda of attracting young families to our city. After many months of negotiations we agreed to a proposal that would add single family homes, semi- detached and townhouses and would have a low impact on local traffic.
A beautiful new development called Centrepoint is now taking shape. When all is said and done there will be 68 townhouses, 31 single family homes, 18 semi-detached homes and a mixed use building where the number of units are still to be determined. The new homes on Kildare Road, Cavendish Boulevard, Park Place and Jubilee are situated within District 2, ably represented by Councillor Mike Cohen. Those on the extension of Kellert Avenue fall within District 6 which I represent.
On October 7, I was joined by a number of colleagues for a ground breaking ceremony for 14 new homes on Kellert near the Beth Israel Beth Aaron Congregation. Pictured left to right below are Councillor Mike Cohen, Councillor Sam Goldbloom, myself with shovel in hand, project manager Line Dufresne, Dubelle Developments president Joe Levine (also on shovel), Dubelle vice-president Jason Levine and Councillor Mitchell Brownstein.
Bravo to the Levines, who have done a magnificent job helping to grow our community with such projects as Ilan Ramon Crescent, Cambridge Courts, Chelsea Courts and now Centrepoint.
