Crescent Heights Affordable Housing Development

Crescent Heights Affordable Housing Development Front

The Crescent Heights affordable housing project is a three-story, 16-unit affordable housing development in the community of Crescent Heights, located at 210 15 Ave. N.E.

Certified silver by Built Green Canada, the Crescent Heights affordable housing development features four studio units, four one-bedroom units, four two-bedroom units and four three-bedroom units. Two units are barrier free, and one is built to accommodate the visually impaired.

The Crescent Heights affordable housing development accommodates individuals and families living on lower incomes that do not allow access to market-value rental housing. Rents are set according to a mixed income model to maintain financial sustainability of the building and provide an inclusionary approach to housing where tenants of mixed financial means are blended together.

The development is managed by Calgary Housing Company who works with residents and surrounding community to create and maintain a safe, secure, and well-managed property.

The Crescent Heights development supports Council's strategy to make affordable housing available to all citizens of Calgary. The building design and site elements will meet the requirements outlined in the 16 Avenue North Urban Corridor Area Redevelopment Plan, as well as The City's standards for sustainable infrastructure and design recommendations identified in the Crescent Heights Area Redevelopment Plan.

The City worked with the community of Crescent Heights to ensure the building was well designed and integrated into the community. Feedback was gathered and discussed at five community meetings that took place between November 2011 and August 2012.

Funding to build the Crescent Heights development was provided by the Provincial Government via a $2.1 million Housing Capital Initiative Grant and via $1.4 million in municipal funding through the Municipal Sustainability Initiative
