Construction started on new housing in Pleasantville
Construction has started on new affordable public housing units in St. John’s. The new units will be for people with lower incomes.
The Governments of Canada and Newfoundland and Labrador are providing $1.85 million to support the construction of eight new affordable housing units on Janeway Place, in Pleasantville.
Once completed, the development will consist of two, four-unit buildings. Each building will include two fully wheelchair-accessible, one-bedroom units on the main level, and two, one-bedroom units on the second level. Universal Design features will be incorporated throughout the building and include items such as widened exterior and interior doors and hallways, lever-type door handles and faucets.
There is also a cost-shared 40-unit apartment complex that will be constructed in Pleasantville.
