What's new at the Dieu?

 

As demolition is coming to an end at the former site of the St. Catharines Hotel Dieu Hospital, some are still curious as to what is planned for this large parcel of land.

     If you haven't yet seen or heard the new site plans, developers are expanding on St. Catharines' retirement community once again.

On February 18th , 2016. The St. Catharines Standard Reported that a "145 million seniors development" was in the works.

"The project includes 560 retirement units spread out over the site, which sits at 155 Ontario St. near Montebello Park and backs onto Twelve Mile Creek.

It includes plans for a 140-unit seniors care residence, two 200-unit apartment buildings and 20 townhomes, according to a city report on community improvement plans, or CIPs, going to council Monday. That report says the estimated project costs are $145 million."
