An Antigonish group is hoping a national contest will assist in developing part of the second phase of an affordable housing project it’s planning. The
Antigonish Affordable Housing Society says if successful, money from the Aviva Community Fund will go towards a community room. The society opened the first phase of its project, Riverside Estates, earlier this year, with four apartment units. Society Chair Colleen Cameron says the group’s board of directors has given the green light for phase two, a further 10 units. She says the community room will play an important role for tenants.
