SUMMERSIDE, P.E.I. —

A 59-unit apartment has been approved for 682 Water St. in Summerside.

Summerside city council gave the project the go-ahead during its monthly meeting on May 19, held via video conference.

The rezoning application was put forward by Nathan Kember of Strategic Holdings Inc.

Kember had presented on the project during a special council meeting on May 6. It then went to the city's planning board committee, which recommended that the city approve it.

The apartment will have barrier-free units and be designed with energy-efficiency in mind to ensure affordability for tenants, Kember said.

"It'll be a very cost-effective place to live."
