This new development will serve as a mixed-use “hub” which will combine seniors housing and a community health centre to simplify and enhance the lives of community members. The project involves an addition to and fit-up of an existing building.
Ottawa Community Housing (OCH) is taking advantage of the vacant lands to the south-west of the existing Carlington Community Health Centre (CCHC) to build an addition that will include the new housing portion of the project. An approximately 12,000 sq ft expansion of the health centre including a medical clinic is planned on the ground floor of the addition, with an interior connection to the existing facility. Other community health care programs will be located in the existing building. The upper three floors will be affordable rental housing for seniors will include 42 independent living rental apartment suites, for OCH.
