Future residents of The Gallery at Bennett Village and the public are invited to watch Mayor Rick Bonnette and board members officially kickoff construction of this development on Saturday, Oct. 14. It starts with a barbecue on-site at 2 p.m. followed by a groundbreaking ceremony at 3 p.m. "This is an exciting day for the Bennett Centre because it marks the beginning of a new era in providing seniors with private independent living," said Ernie Bodnar, chair of the Land Use Committee for The Gallery. "This development fills a void in housing options currently available. We are creating a unique lifestyle community, which will provide residents with an opportunity to enjoy maintenance-free living in a community of shared values and interests. It is crucial that we, as a society, provide our seniors with lifestyle options; The Gallery accomplishes this." Already more than 60 per cent of the suites, which range in size from 830 sq. ft. to 1,354 sq. ft., have been sold to area residents. The life-lease units give residents the right to occupy a unit and to sell their suite at market value at anytime. Common amenities include a main floor library with fireplace, multi-purpose and games room, woodworking shop, guest suite, wellness and fitness centre, and a car wash bay. For more information about the new apartment building call Paul Skinner, 905-702-1247.
