Uplands Housing Development

We're so excited about (and proud of!) our new housing development at 3425 Uplands Drive.  Now finished, it has three buildings and a total of 28 townhouse units - 12 of which are housing persons served by NACL, and the remaining 16 occupied by working people with an appreciation for people with diversabilities, at 90% of market rent.   

In partnership with Community Living BC (CLBC) and utilizing a thoughtful, person-centered approach, we are ensuring that a resource system with a focus on unpaid community supports is in place.  

We are extremely thankful for the support of BC Housing with this project, along with John Jessup and Associates, dys Architecture, and Knappett Projects Inc.

We've kept the launch of this housing community low-key in light of COVID-19, but we promise we'll do a grand opening when it's safer to do so.  Stay tuned!

Rest assured if you bought tickets before, they'll still be honoured!  We'll continue to update everyone as we get closer to that time, as things evolve re COVID-19.  We're excited to do whatever we can to make this event happen - so, thank you for your support!
