Demolition begins to make way for 40 more affordable units in New Canaan

The town is expected to add 40 more affordable housing units to its inventory after demolition has started on the old Canaan Parish complex this week. Tenants from the old buildings moved into the new 60-unit North building this fall, which is one of two that will replace the 10 structures at Canaan Parish on 186 Lakeview Ave. AP Construction, the contracted company, “has worked hard to order as much as possible as early as possible to try to minimize impact,” Hobbs said. The overall project is being financed through a Federal Housing Administration mortgage, Hobbs explained. “It does come with some bureaucratic strings attached, which we comply with.”
