Webinar: Driving New Housing Supply Across a Range of Affordability Options
December 13, 2016
From a new private sector cohousing development in Saskatoon, to a non-profit charity focused on providing safe, affordable housing in Ottawa – don't miss out on this webinar showcasing how new housing is getting built across a range of affordability options.
Hear from Radiance CoHousing who will share the challenges and successes they have encountered while building a new family oriented condo development in the urban centre of Saskatoon, set to break ground in the spring of 2017. Learn more about the cohousing model, as well as the design, financing, sustainability and neighbourhood impacts of the project, along with the management and community principles cohousing fosters.
Ottawa's Multifaith Housing Initiative (MHI) will also join us to discuss a number of projects underway, including The Haven, a 98 unit mix of town homes and low rise apartment buildings featuring multi-use community space and accessible, affordable units set for completion in the spring of 2017. MHI will also speak about their Veterans House, utilizing a supportive Housing First model to be built entirely through fundraising, and will further address issues such as NIMBY'ism encountered through their mixed-tenure condo development at Somerset House.
