Work Begins on New 108 Apartment Building Downtown

After several delays, work has begun on a new 108 unit apartment building on Pim Street.

SalDan developments is constructing the 5 storey building with a slightly different design that was previously proposed by local developer, Steve Perzia.

Originally, the building was approved by council in 2020 with construction complete by 2023 at a cost of $20 million. It is not known how much the new design will run.

This was the original design for the building when first pitched to city hall in 2020

The original plan called for a mix of one and two bedroom units. The building would also have a sauna plus entertainment rooms for the tenants. It is believed the new building will be ready for Fall 2024.

The downtown location, behind the Algonquin Hotel was the former location of the Tara Hall .

It’s been 36 years since Tara Hall burned to the ground and the lot has sat empty ever since.

Tara Hall was the first apartment building in Sault Ste. Marie , opening in 1912.
