Snowy groundbreaking for new housing quarter

Fool’s prank from Old Man Winter when a mid-April blizzard blew into town the same day as the scheduled groundbreak- ing for the newest addition to Rockland’s residential landscape. Mike Gervais and Charles Clement of C.H.

Clement Construction took it in stride and smiled as they went ahead with the official launch of the Quartier de l’Est housing proj- ect April 12. “Welcome to our winter event,” said Ger- vais, smiling, as wet snow fell outside the showroom office at the Nathalie Street site for the 50-townhouse development. Quartier de l’Est is a housing project aimed at new families looking for starter homes in the Clarence-Rockland area. Ger- vais, head of business development for C.H. Clement Construction, noted that many in- quiries have already come in from the Or-

léans area and the company has nine con- firmed sales for homes in the development as soon as crews are finishing putting them and installing all of the fixtures. “We are getting quite a lot of new families coming in,”he said.“This project is designed for younger families. We even supply appli- ances.” Gervais described Quartier de l’Est as “a relatively good-sized project” for the com- pany. The $12-million project should be completed within the year and Gervais and Clement expect to have all of the units sold within a two-year period.

“A home away from home in Eastern Ontario!” Rooms are now available!

After a surprise blizzard blew its way through town last week, construction crews are back on the job on Monday putting up another one of 50 townhouse units planned for the Quarter de l’Est residential development in Rockland. The project is targeting the young urban family market as Rockland continues to develop as a “bedroom community” of nearby Ottawa and its commuter work- force.
