Uplands Housing Development

We're making great progress on on our new housing development at 3425 Uplands Drive.  When finished, it will have three buildings and a total of 28 townhouse units - 12 of which will house 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 will ensure 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.

Check out these pictures from November 2019, when windows were being installed!

...and here's a couple more, showing our progress as of January 2020!

Keep watching for further updates as we get closer to move-in day - exciting times, for sure!
