Mission/Victoria – More than 70 affordable rental apartments and a new seniors’ community centre will help Mission seniors live independently and continue to enjoy life in their community.
Mission Association of Seniors Housing is receiving $7.4 million from the Province’s Building BC: Community Housing Fund to build the new homes for low- to moderate-income seniors.
Located at 7682 Grand St., the six-storey wood-frame building will provide 74 apartments with studio and one- and- two-bedroom units.
A community centre will be located on the ground floor and will be funded and operated by the District of Mission parks, recreation and culture department.
Mission Association for Seniors Housing will also help residents connect with services and supports available in the community. This service, along with the on-site community centre, will make the project a hub for seniors in Mission.
Construction is expected to start summer 2019.
