Seniors in the Whitemouth community will soon have a new housing option as plans for a new 55 plus housing complex are underway.

The area’s 55 Plus seniors’ housing committee plans to construct an 18-suite life lease seniors’ housing complex in Whitemouth.

Murray Barkman, the committee’s president, said the idea for the project began with discussions about the need for senior’s housing in the community.

"It just happened after having conversation in the local town," said Barkman. "There’s a definite need for it and there’s nothing like this in the area whatsoever."

There is an $85,000 buy-in for the project. Rent will cost $1,083 or $1,285 per month, depending on the suite’s size. Barkman said they are currently selling eight suites and another 10 will become available later on. The facility will have an attached garage for tenants, he added.

The complex, which will be located at 126 Main Street, is currently in the planning stages. Barkman said construction is expected to take eight months and will be completed this year.

He noted there is already been a lot of interest in the project.

For more information on investing in the project, contact Barkman at 1-204-348-2503.
