There is growing demand in the Town of Tecumseh for new condo development.

Tecumseh town council gave the green light to two condominium developments on Tuesday night.

The two developments total 161 new units.

Mayor Gary McNamara says new developments are 'great news' for residents in the area.

“Most of them are from Tecumseh,” says McNamara. “If they're moving there and selling their homes that creates other opportunities for younger families to move-in. So we're seeing the empty-nesters now moving into another category of home.”

The Harbour Club condominium is a 64-unit luxury condominium dwelling in St. Clair Beach. The five-storey complex would be built at Tecumseh Road, east of Brighton Road on the former Pud's Marina property, which closed in 2017.

The project includes parking spaces, boat slips and common areas.

Council also approved a six-storey, 97 unit complex to be situated at Tecumseh Road and Southfield Drive.

Developer Valente now needs approval from Essex County before construction begins.

A public meeting is to be scheduled next month, and work will begin by the fall.
