Construction to start on new building, community wellness hub, for Oakville seniors

Construction of a four-storey apartment building for seniors in Oakville will begin this month.

The Seniors Supportive Housing and Community Wellness Hub, at 265 Kerr St., will create 52 new units (22 studio and 30 one-bedroom units) for seniors supportive housing.

This development, being constructed by the Region of Halton, also includes a Community Wellness hub on the ground floor that will provide on-site supportive housing programs and services.

The multi-residential building will be energy efficient and Halton Region’s first Passive House certified building.

To help drivers and local residents prepare for the construction, the Region is letting people know what to expect:

  • Dust and mud: There may be increased levels of dust and mud near the work site. The contractor will manage these impacts
  • Erosion and sediment controls: The Region will install erosion and sediment control measures for the duration of the project, including a tree-protection fence and perimeter fencing with heavy-duty silt fabric.
  • Noise: You may experience some noise as a result of this Regional improvement. The work schedule will comply with local noise by-laws and every effort will be made to minimize any disruption or inconvenience to the surrounding community.
  • Truck traffic: You will notice occasional increases in truck traffic around the ongoing work. Please be aware and use extra caution while driving.

If you have any questions or concerns related to the project, email [email protected] or call 311.
