Construction has begun on 20 new one- and two-bedroom apartment units in three buildings in the latest phase of The Village development in Niagara-on-the-Lake.

The Shaw Festival has already agreed to rent one building, leasing seven units starting on Nov. 1.

“We are very excited to be bringing new rental housing to The Village," said John Hawley, president of Traditional Neighbourhood Developments Inc. "Providing a diversity of housing options has always been integral to our original vision and master plan, and rental housing is a key part of that,”

“They’re going to be beautiful buildings, with architectural connections to heritage properties in Niagara-on-the-Lake,” he said in a media statement. 

His son Adam Hawley, vice-president of the development firm, said they drew inspiration for the project from the Willowbank Estate in Queenston, "with its beautiful curved staircases and prominent entrance."

"They’re going to be exceptional buildings to frame our neighbourhood and the entrance to Old Town.”
