Four Saskatoon housing projects receive millions from government

June 8, 2012 - The Saskatchewan government is giving four new housing projects in Saskatoon millions of dollars in financing.

The 258 entry-level homes in the four developments will get $38-million through the HeadStart on a Home program.

The four projects receiving money are Blairmore Landing, Stonebridge Villas, Coad Crossing and Hartford Crossing.

“HeadStart will enable more Saskatchewan families to transition from rental units to homeownership,” Social Services Minister June Draude said in making the announcement.

Work is already underway at Blairmore Landing, which consists of 74 units priced between $138,500 and $217,900.

It is expected to be ready for occupancy in January 2013.
