"We're still waiting for the final word. Only a few details remain to be ironed said Joseph Zappia, president of Terraces Zarolega. Montreal city council ap- proved the project, to be built in east-end Viau Park, on June 28, but Gerard Niding, city ex- ecutive chairman, said Tues- day a council meeting about the project planned for Friday had been postponed indefinite- ly because some documents were incomplete. A start on the twin pyramid towers was originally set for mid-August but was delayed when Central Mortgage and Housing Corp. (CMHC) balk- ed at financing the project. CMHC officials said the 922- unit project did not fit existing programs aimed at increasing low-and medium-cost housing. A spokesman said the federal agency could endorse a loan if the group found acceptable backers.
