Community Employee Housing Facility

In partnership with local organizations, Community Futures is exploring the viability of constructing a 100 unit Community Employee Housing Facility. The units would be fully furnished bachelor suites, with their own kitchen and bathroom. The end cost to the resident will be $1,000 per month, including rent, furnishing, utilities and high speed internet. There would also be gear/bike storage in the basement.
 
Building Description:

-        four story wood frame construction with concrete foundation
-        100 rental units fully furnished
-        50 parking stalls under building and 50 stalls at grade
-        Building quality and design similar to VEDA 800 building in Kelowna
