A brand new co-op for a grand old neighbourhood
Old Grace Housing Co-operative (OGHC) is a new housing co-op in the heart of Winnipeg’s Wolseley neighbourhood. The co-op is currently under construction on the site of the original Grace Hospital and will be ready for occupancy in early 2018.
The 60-suite building’s design both reflects the scale and character of the homes in this well-established community and exceeds Canadian standards for environmental sustainability. The co-operative is committed to providing affordable housing, is open to individuals and families, and will be pet friendly and smoke-free.
