Great suites, a great co-op
Great suites are still available in Old Grace Housing Co-operative, a new housing co-op being built in the heart of Winnipeg’s Wolseley neighbourhood.
The 60-unit 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.
