Senior’s housing approved for former St. Peter’s school

Published on

Sarnia has approved the proposed seniors’ housing project for the former St. Peter’s school.

Construction is expected to begin this spring on the 104-unit complex proposed by Sarnia-based Nelmar Developments, starting with the conversion of the two-storey school building into a 28-unit retirement home.

The home will feature one-and-two bedroom units, a wellness centre, fitness studio, library and dining room. What’s now a gymnasium with 20-foot ceilings will become a common space with multiple seating areas and a large fireplace, the developer says.

The project’s second phase will see a four-storey addition built with another 75 retirement units.

The 2.5-acre property is at 696 Oxford St.
