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

The development will be located at the north-west corner of the intersection of Evanson Street and Preston Avenue. It is kitty-corner to the main 60-unit Old Grace Housing Co-operative (built on the site of the original Grace Hospital).

Construction is expected to commence in February 2018 with occupancy in autumn 2018.

The townhouses

Each townhouse will have:

  • a kitchen, living room, and half bathroom on the ground floor
  • three bedrooms, storage, and a full bathroom (bathtub with shower) on the second floor
  • front porch and second-floor balcony off the master bedroom
  • level rear entrance to each suite

All townhouses are designed so that they can be visited by people in wheelchairs.

Each townhouse will be equipped with an electric stove and refrigerator and will be wired and plumbed so laundry equipment and dishwashers can be installed by residents.

Each townhouse unit also comes with:

  • Secure, lockable windows and porch  doors
  • Triple-glazed, low E argon windows with screens
  • Porch and balcony doors with glazed window inserts
  • High levels of soundproofing between suites
  • Individual suite heating and cooling controls
  • Nine-foot ceilings in living room, dining area, and kitchen
  • Altima kitchen cabinets with plastic laminate countertops
  • Water-saving fixtures and fittings
  • Low-volatile organic compound (VOC) finishes, products, and materials
  • LED light fixtures
Building features
  • Sustainable design meeting PowerSmart standards
  • Professionally designed landscaping

  • $50 application fee for membership.
  • $28,000 for OGHC Member Shares. (Member Shares are refunded when members leave the co-operative.)
  • A monthly occupancy charge of approximately $1,254. The occupancy charge covers the co-op’s mortgage, property taxes, building insurance, utility charges (such as electricity, heat, sewer, and water), administration costs, repairs, maintenance, and reserves.
