    Once demolished, construction will include multi-unit buildings that feature a combination of one- and two-bedroom homes,

    Government has issued a call to have vacant and run down social housing  buildings demolished to get ready for  the construction of 50 new affordable homes in Corner Brook. The tender includes the demolition of 32 existing units in four vacant buildings  in the Crestview Avenue area to make way for 50 new provincially-owned homes. Budget 2024 allocated $20 million to construct new homes in the area that are modern and energy efficient, with universal design features incorporated throughout. On May 30, Inflector Environmental Services LP was awarded a nearly $430,000 tender to remove materials with asbestos safely and address other environmental concerns. A request for proposals will be issued in late-summer or early-fall 2024. The project will include multi-unit buildings that feature a combination of one- and two-bedroom homes, the greatest area of need in the current social housing portfolio.
