Downtown Windsor Condo Moves Ahead

Downtown Windsor Condo Moves Ahead After 'trepidation', Valente Steams forward with  expanded Downtown Project A local developer who backed off building a 24-unit residential project on Ouellette Avenue when the Downtown Mission announced it was moving into the central library building across the street, has revved it back up and added eight more units. “I believe the project has gotten better and bigger,” Peter Valente told city council Monday, while urging councillors to address rising crime rates, homelessness and addiction problems in the downtown. The fact you’re going through with it is a sign of your dedication Valente’s project was the first significant new residential development announced for the downtown in more than two decades, and is tied to the city’s one-year-old community improvement plan that provides incentives for projects that bring more residents into the downtown. The CIP’s been an unqualified success, spurring $60 million in new development and several hundred new residential…

Exempting development charges for multi-family dwellings in the core area of LaSalle has had the desired result, attracting several condominium projects in 2017. Larry Silani, the town’s director of development and strategic initiatives, said the waiver drew a large, 131-unit condominium development as well as a couple of smaller projects with 10 or 12 units in total. Overall, housing construction in LaSalle slowed slightly in 2017. “When it comes to singles, semis and townhouses, we’ve been very successful in having that form of housing built in LaSalle without having any incentives being necessary,” Silani said. “When it came to multi-family residential there wasn’t a lot of building activity and similiarly…

Grants for downtown condo development approved by planning committee

Grants for downtown condo development approved by planning committee Windsor's planning committee has given the go-ahead for grants for a new residential condominium development downtown under the Downtown Windsor Community Improvement Plan.  The plan, approved by council in September, makes money available with the goal of increasing the number of residential units in the downtown core, improving businesses facades and adding retail units to vacant buildings.  The application from the Valente Home Development Corporation is for a proposed three-storey, 24-unit residential condominium on the north side of Ouellette Avenue, across from the Windsor Public Library. The units will be between 800 and 1,100 square-feet.  It was approved unanimously by the planning committee Monday, but still needs approval from council. "It's an opportunity for people who live downtown to have something newer," said the developer, Peter Valente. "From what I understand there hasn't been anything new built downtown, residentially, in quite some time."…
