Update: PAL Place, 101 Brunswick

Update: PAL Place, 101 Brunswick

Construction at PAL Place, 101 Brunswick Street, is now well underway. The Building permit was issued on June 21st and construction started the following day. The five units (one bachelor and four one- bedroom units) of affordable housing are now taking shape. Vic and Amanda Ryan have been hard at work removing wallpaper, drywall and partitions for some time. They have been on-site pretty much on a daily basis. Their help has been invaluable to us. Over 10 tons of debris have been removed to date and placed in the land fill. Where possible, materials are being recycled through Habitat for Humanity.

Project Manager, Don Culliton is coordinating the work of our two primary sub-contractors, Lannin Mechanical and Lloyd’s Electric as well as handling much of the carpentry work and other jobs as well.

Electrical and plumbing work is now almost done. New hydro and water services have to be brought into the building underground. The hydro line is in, drywalling has begun and should be complete by mid-September.

A number of PAL members have been very helpful in dropping in and volunteering to assist in various ways – in the garden and in the house – and their work is greatly appreciated.

All of this work, as well as relations with City Hall, has been very capably overseen by Gordon Sherwin, Building Committee Chair.

Recently new kitchen cabinets were delivered. They are in storage until they can be installed.

Tim St. Louis of Raintree Interiors has volunteered to assist with the interior decoration of the house. He is currently considering room layouts and furniture arrangement in the common areas. If you have any items that you think might be of use to PAL in furnishing the building, please give Amanda Ryan a call at 519-271-6274 or email her.

Amanda has also been noting progress in the building on our web site. Visit for the latest developments.

We are hoping for occupancy in October or November.
