McLevin elevations

 

What are we building?

 

We are building six, two-storey townhomes at 270-280 McLevin Avenue. These townhomes will have:

 

  • Wood privacy fencing along McLevin Avenue;
  • Landscaping throughout including 14 new trees plus additional plants and shrubs;
  • An attached garage for each home;
  • Design and construction that reflects the character of the neighbourhood.

 

Who will live there?

 

 To qualify for homeownership with Habitat GTA, a partner family must meet the following criteria:

 

  • They must be currently living in unsafe, unhealthy, overcrowded housing;
  • They must have a demonstrated track record of employment in order to be able to carry a modest mortgage, and;
  • They must be willing to volunteer 500 “sweat equity” hours to help build their own home, other Habitat homes, or volunteering in our ReStores or with events.

 

Like all other homeowners, these families will pay property taxes while building home equity. In general, after homeownership, Habitat families experience improved health, improved educational outcomes for their children, increased family incomes and other benefits arising from living in a safe, decent home.
