New affordable housing announced in Saanich
The BC government and the Capital Region Housing Corporation (CRHC) have partnered to provide affordable rental homes for seniors, adults with disabilities and families in Saanich.
Westview, located at 3816 Carey Rd., will provide 73 affordable rental homes for people in Saanich and the Capital Regional District. The four-storey building will contain 11 studio apartments, 38 one-bedroom apartments, 20 two-bedroom apartments and four three-bedroom apartments.
CRHC will collaborate with the Independent Living Housing Society by making five fully accessible ground-floor units available for people who need them, as well as office and gathering space for the society's programming. The society will select tenants for the five designated accessible units.
Construction is anticipated to be complete early in 2020.
