At the May 10 Côte Saint-Luc City Council meeting the process that will eventually lead to part of the present Cavendish Mall facility being demolished, making way for a new housing development, began. A series of notices of motion were adopted focusing on the change of boundaries, the modification of the city planning program, municipal works agreements and the demolition of buildings.
Lauren Berenholc (pictured below), one of our community’s finest real estate agents with Century 21 Vision, spoke on the issue during public question period. She asked Mayor Anthony Housefather what the city intended to do to attract young families to this future development and inquired about a timeline for possible construction at the Mall.
The mayor welcomed Lauren’s intervention and indicated that when development does begin a substantial number of lots will be devoted to single family homes and town houses. “which I hope will be in the price range for young families.”
Furthermore, the mayor noted that the city will be building a state of the art intergenerational and aq uatic centre on Parkhaven Avenue, next to the outdoor pool. “That is only a three and a half block walk from the Mall,” he said, maintaining that this project will indeed attract young families.
As for a timeline, the mayor said that a public consultation on the Mall proposal will be held in due time. Once that occurs we will be in a better position to determine when some homes will be built there.
