Website says affordable housing, not seniors. Looks great, curious how much the VE process will water that down...
Sorry. I stand corrected. If I read it more carefully it says...
Through composition that includes 1, 2 + 3 bedroom units types the project responds the to socio-demographics of the surrounding areas which are increasingly family (single and dual parent) and seniors orientated.
Southview will be an Aging in Place environment by accounting for a fully inclusive site including circulation, barrier-free units in excess of 21% of the total, and overall unit composition and design that fosters internal flexibility potential for live / work situations.

Rendering out for a 113 unit proposal on Mission Road. I think this is the one mentioned by @MichaelS earlier

A rezoning application to MH-2 for some parcels around Chinook station. Just land use, no DP, but maybe the first sign that some redevelopment might FINALLY happen 14 years after the ARP was passed, and about 5 years after the investment into 61st Ave:

Ooops, forgot to mention the architect is Gravity, not sure who the developer is.
It's on their website now. According to the text, Carlisle Group is involved. This would be a departure from their usual product.
