This project consists of 72 units of affordable housing built above an existing 1960’s exposed concrete structure. The ground floor is intended to be leased to retail or restaurant uses. A variety of studio, one-bedroom, two-bedroom and loft units are included. Rent rates for the housing will be between 10% and 20% lower than market rate.
The residential units are supported by a Federal-Provincial grant and 15 units designed to be fully adapted for handicapped residents are supported by a City of Edmonton grant.
The new structure is steel frame with reinforced concrete floors poured into exposed metal pans.
