Cool Aid Announces New Apartment Building, Campaign Cabinet

 

A news conference will be held Tuesday morning, September 16, at 10:15 am, at 3207 Quadra, just north of Tolmie. Highlights will include:

 

o   Showcasing the $1 million ‘Cottage Grove’ property that Victoria Cool Aid Society plans to develop into 45 apartments for seniors who have been homeless.
 

o   Celebrating recent decisions by the District of Saanich that support Cottage Grove.

 

o   Introducing the “Help End Homelessness” Campaign Cabinet and Advisory Council, including Chair Rob Reid and many community leaders. Cool Aid and Cabinet’s goal is to build 360 apartments for people who have been homeless by raising $5 million in donations from individuals, corporations and foundations, and to leverage $45 million more in government investments to Help End Homelessness.
 

The Victoria Cool Aid Society builds homes, lives and community. We create opportunities for people who are homeless or living in poverty. We make a difference through housing, health care, support and emergency shelters. Cool Aid currently operates 374 apartments for people who have been homeless, in ten buildings in Langford, Victoria and Saanich – including three buildings dedicated to seniors. Founded in 1968, Cool Aid helps over 9,000 people in the Capital Region every year. The Society’s major new campaign is “Help End Homelessness”, to build an additional 360 apartments for people in the community who have no home.

The Cool Aid Society said about half of the 375 people it houses in its 10 apartment buildings in Greater Victoria are 55 or older, while 15 per cent of people staying at its three emergency shelters — 260 people — were also 55 or older.

“Not only is ending homelessness the right thing to do, it’s also the smart thing to do, because it’s more expensive to leave someone homeless on the street, or in shelters, than it is to provide them with a home and the supports they need to have a valued life in our community,” Stinson said.

On Tuesday, politicians and housing advocates stood in the overgrown grass of the property at 3207 Quadra St. — acquired by the Cool Aid Society from the estate of Herman Rebneris for just more than $1 million — to celebrate the project’s readiness.

Rebneris died Oct. 29, 2010, after a five-year fight with cancer. He was respected in the region for his tireless efforts to supply affordable housing for families and seniors.

The project is “shovel-ready” — site architectural and landscaping plans are complete and Saanich has approved the development permit — but no sod will be turned until the B.C. government kicks in its $4.8 million of the $6.6 million needed to start building, said Alan Rycroft, society spokesman.

Saw them with the drawings on easels on-site yesterday and figured it was blitz to tell people about it. Finally that blight will be useful!

Look ma, no beige! I think it fits in quite nicely. It's amazing how fast a building goes up if there's no underground parking to dig.

It's not a bad looking building, that's for sure.
