LEDUC, ALTA. - The Alberta government has approved $14.4-million in funding for the construction of 64 new affordable housing units for Leduc's Linsford Gardens residents.
The project involves the demolition of the current aging Linsford Townhouses and the construction of Linsford Gardens.
The demolition of the townhouses and construction of the new units will be conducted in phases so tenants can move directly into their new homes.
The housing complex in Leduc contains 30 two-bedroom, six three-bedroom and six four-bedroom units.
The new Linsford Gardens complex will have 64 affordable one- to four-bedroom housing units.
"The funding of Linsford Gardens allows Leduc Foundation to continue to be a leader in the development and management of affordable housing within the Leduc region," said Robert Young, chair of the Leduc Foundation Board of Directors. "Linsford Gardens will contribute to the provision of housing options for low- to moderate-income seniors, individuals and families of the Leduc region communities."
