Is your family looking for affordable housing in Wolseley?

Old Grace Housing Co-operative will soon start construction of four three-bedroom townhouses.

Free Press hails OGHC

Winnipeg Fress Press columnist Brent Bellamy has hailed OGHC as “an inspiring example” of affordable housing in an established neighbourhood.

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 60-suite Phase I of Old Grace Housing Co-operative (OGHC) is nearing completion on the site of the original Grace Hospital at Preston Avenue and Arlington Street in Winnipeg’s Wolseley neighbourhood. Phase II, consisting of four three-bedroom townhouses, is expected to commence in February 2018 with occupancy in autumn 2018.

The project 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.
