Ouellette Avenue Apartment Building Ordered To Be Evacuated

City of Windsor Building officials have ordered the apartment building at 1616 Ouellette Avenue to be evacuated until electricity can be restored, stabilized and inspected, and safety measures can, in turn, be activated.

The building has been without centralized heat for some time due to a boiler failure, and electrical power has been unstable.

The city says that electrical and heating contractors will be on-site to determine how long it will take to fix the issues, which will help determine how long residents may be out.

In the meantime, the City of Windsor will open an emergency shelter for residents who are unable to find alternate accommodations on their own.

City staff and the Canadian Red Cross will provide emergency shelter at the John Atkinson Memorial Community Centre. Programming at the community centre has been cancelled, and program users have been notified.

The building is a privately owned building with 120 residential rental units. The building’s owners have been notified of the orders, and the city says they are committed to having the issues fixed as quickly as possible.
