CORNWALL – A soon-to-be-built apartment complex at the foot of Prince Arthur Street will be named after the visionary for the area.
The Renaissance Land Development Corporation held a sod turning Wednesday afternoon for the Bayview Apartments – a six-unit complex with rents starting at $2,100 a month.
Corporation President Mark MacDonald was joined by Mayor Bernadette Clement as well as Pam and Ray Carson of the city’s Adopt-a-Street program at the ceremony.
It’s being built right next to the four-unit townhouse at 2-4 McConnell Avenue which was built by the same developer.
The site overlooks the St. Lawrence River and is roughly in the middle of the Chuck Charlebois Recreational Trail – a section of the waterfront trail dedicated in May 2019 to the former councilman who was seen by many as a great visionary for the Renaissance District.
Chuck Charlebois died at the age of 69 in February 2018.
