An old house at 1012 Richardson has been seeing some significant changes this summer.

It appears that a small townhouse project is going to be proposed for 515 Foul Bay Road in the Gonzales neighbourhood...
More details have emerged on this proposal. 18 new units will be created - 9 3-bedroom townhouses with 9 1-bedroom units on the first floor of these townhouses.
