This parcel of land was formerly the home of the Schofield Woolen Mills. It is located at 372 Centre Street South in Oshawa. It is in the southwest shoulder area of downtown Oshawa close to schools, shopping, clinics and transportation. The downtown core of Oshawa has been undergoing a positive transformation and this parcel sits in an established older neighbourhood just to the west of Simcoe Street.
Habitat Durham has made the decision to build 4 blocks with 1 block being built each year. The Family Selection Committee is taking applications and is looking for partner families to work with us on this project. Our CentreTowne site will be completed by the end of 2016.
We will be able to adapt end units for wheelchair accessibility if required. The homes will be built with the newest building code energy requirements as well as using Green Building techniques as often as possible, making them affordable to maintain.
Please visit our Volunteer section if you want to sign up to participate in this build. Please read our Letter of Eligibility if you are a family looking to partner with us.
