NEW PROJECT UNDERWAY

Fr. Eugene O'Leary Council 6595 Knights of Columbus owners of Fr. Eugene O'Leary Seniors Apartment Complex, 100 Eugene's Way (Saint John East) is in the early stages of design and development of a Retirement Living Complex on land adjacent to the O'Leary Complex.

Several years ago Council 6595 purchased a 1½ acre piece of land bordering on Eugene's Way and Loch Lomond Road with the intent of eventually building either a council building or a second apartment building.

The O'Leary Complex has proven to be a resounding success over its thee year existence. The Forty-Six apartment complex has become a community within a community in its park like setting. There continues to be a demand for new housing in the East Saint John area.

In this early stage of development the design team has recommended the building consist of two bedroom/two bathroom apartments including appliances and all amenities. Following in the footsteps of the O'Leary building – O'Leary Court (the preferred name) will provide ample storage, a large common/community room, elevator, and side splits. Particular attention to our aging community will see accessible accommodations with roll in showers, grab bars etc. The entire building will be wheel chair accessible.

As the plans develop, like the O'Leary project, information sessions will be held for all to view and question the development. The construction team and the building committee are moving the project along with a planned completion date of Fall, 2018.
