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.

Progress continues on construction of Old Grace Housing Co-op, with a targeted completion date of November 2017.
Approximately half the foundation, crawlspace, and basement construction have been completed.
In the coming weeks, excavation and concrete work will continue around the Preston and Evanson wings of the complex. Framing of the Arlington-facing wing will begin when the insulated foundation is in place.

Boulevard trees and grass
In order to construct a driveway into Old Grace Housing Co-operative’s site, it has been necessary to remove a tree on the public boulevard on the Evanson Street side of the lot. A second boulevard tree was removed because it was in poor health. Both trees are being removed with the approval of the City of Winnipeg.
Next year three new canopy trees—two on Evanson and one on Preston—will be planted on the public boulevards. OGHC will also be removing two existing concrete driveway entrances on the Evanson side of the lot. These areas will be planted with grass and returned to the boulevard. (To see photos of the areas that will be returned to the boulevard, click here).
In addition, OGHC will be planting 24 trees and 80 shrubs on three exterior sides of the building. For more OGHC’s planting program, click here.
