Capital Region Housing is setting the bar high with the new Londonderry Housing Pilot project in Edmonton. The new development will include 240 new units consisting of an even mix of market-rate, affordable (20 percent under market), and social housing units. The development aims to be a sustainable model of subsidized housing to provide a place for gathering and community.
The design aims to encourage people to meet and build community by being arranged in an X formation to create two separate courtyards. One courtyard will be open to the public for spontaneous gathering or on-site services such as daycare. The other will be semi-private and include a community garden.
For a look at the design and more information, view the Edmonton Journal article.
