A proposal has been submitted to the City (and renewed in 2020 and 2021) for two 3-story multi-family buildings with an interesting aspect - the historic E&N Railway will pass right between them! With only a couple of trains running per week these days, the train shouldn't be a problem - especially when you consider the likelihood of the rails being replaced with a multi-use recreational pathway in coming years.
The location is on Milton St, just east of Albert St and the Superette grocery store.
NOTE: I don't have confirmation about whether these will be stratified, e.g., whether units will be sold individually as condo units. These may remain privately held as rental. If you'd like to be kept in the loop, just contact me and let me know!
The building west of the tracks will be 555 Milton St., with 20 units:
- nine 2-bedroom suites
- five 1-bedroom suites
- six bachelor suites
The other building (on the corner with Hecate St) will be 575 Milton St with 14 homes (nine 2-bedroom units, five 1-bedroom) plus another 4 live/work units.
This rendering shows how the railway will pass between the buildings:
Here are the two plans, stitched together:
