The new centre is warm and welcoming in concept and design. The second and third floors will accommodate the 57 affordable housing units. Floors four to seven will be home to the 256 long-term care units. The long-term care units will be grouped into eight pods, thereby offering residents smaller, congenial communities in which to enjoy daily activities and form friendships.
The ground floor will incorporate shared space for both the long-term care and the affordable housing residents while extending a welcome to the larger community as well. This “Community Hub” will be used to support recreational, educational and culturally focused programs. Our guiding principles for this non-residential space are inclusivity and community outreach. These amenity spaces will feature activities and programs which may include arts and crafts, cooking classes, movie nights, physical exercise classes, interactive workshops and a computer lab hub/learning centre.
