Affordable lofts project gets brownfield
An affordable housing project that will turn a West Brant industrial site into 28 lofts has received a $40,190 rebate under the city’s brownfields tax incentives scheme. It is the first project to be awarded funding under the new program. Brantcord Warehousing Inc. will get a rebate toward expenses in transforming the building on Sherwood Drive into Cordage Lofts. The 10,000-square-foot building was once owned by Brantford Cordage Company.
