“We’re excited to see the project moving forward at the 122 Baseline Road West development and to have a trusted partner like London’s own EllisDon onsite to bring these new homes to London,” says Mayor Ed Holder in a news release.

“Safe and affordable housing is a right for everyone and it is a top priority for our Council. Initiatives like this promote greater dignity for individuals, and greater economic prosperity for our communities.”

“This important project hits close to home for EllisDon, as our roots started in London, Ontario,” says Mike Stewart with EllisDon. “We are honoured to provide affordable housing for the city where we live, and continue to build in.”
