CALGARY, ALTA.—The doors are now open at a new $22 million affordable housing complex in Calgary’s Bridgeland community.
The facility offers housing for approximately 200 people.
With support from the Alberta and federal governments, the City of Calgary and private fundraising, non-profit housing provider Forward Housing developed the Bishop’s Manor complex.
The facility offers 104 suites, from one to four bedrooms, and shared spaces, including a community garden, rooftop terrace and play area for children.
The complex also features a spiritual wellness room where residents can meditate, pray, smudge or worship, intended to help create a welcoming and inclusive community.
According to the province, the project created more than 160 jobs during the planning, design and construction of the facility. It is now fully occupied.
