A new, affordable housing project slated for an east London neighbourhood will help address a “need” in the area, said the group that wants to build it.

A non-profit, faith-based group will make its pitch to the city Tuesday to build a five-storey, 41-unit project at 1039-1047 Dundas St. E., near the former Kellogg plant.

“We see that area as one that is in need,” said Dale Boost, project development committee chairperson, for the London Affordable Housing Foundation, a multi-faith, volunteer organization.

“There is a need on Dundas Street east and in the Old East Village. This will be an upgrade to the area, there are people there struggling with rental situations.”

The building, which could be available for rent in about a year if the city approves it, needs rezoning to be built, said Mike Corby, city planner.
