A struggling stretch of Dundas Street in east London is poised to get a boost from a new affordable housing project.

A five-storey, 41-unit building called Nightingale Place has been proposed for a vacant lot at 1039-1047 Dundas St.

The new apartment building is just west of the former Kellogg plant, which is being revived for entertainment, transportation and office uses.

“We lost a lot with Kellogg’s shutting down, but there’s some exciting stuff going on there and having affordable housing right there, it’s a great location,” said Steve Giustizia, of London’s Housing Development Corp. (HDC).

The London Affordable Housing Foundation, a faith-based non-profit group, has applied to rezone the site. A community open house on the development will be held Jan. 31.
