ABOUT THE PROJECT
On June 30, 2021, Calgary Housing Company will close the Rundle Manor residential complex. While Rundle Manor is a valuable asset in the provision of affordable housing, it is no longer practical to make major investments into the 40-year-old complex. Calgary Housing Company plans to develop new, modern affordable housing onto the site.
The site meets the criteria The City of Calgary uses to select sites for affordable housing, including nearby community amenities like groceries, transit, schools, parks and recreation areas.
The City of Calgary is undertaking a feasibility study to determine the best way to design and operate new affordable housing in Rundle to ensure long-term sustainability.
With one in five Calgary households struggling to pay for housing costs, this redevelopment is part of The City’s direction to ensure that low-income Calgarians have a safe, stable place to call home in all neighbourhoods across the city.
PROVIDE YOUR INPUT
As part of the feasibility study, the City is asking Rundle Manor residents, Rundle and area community members and other stakeholders in this new affordable housing development to share their insights about these future homes. The project team wants to hear your hopes, concerns and innovative ideas about how to design and operate new affordable housing in Rundle to ensure long-term sustainability.
After public engagement is closed, the City of Calgary will share findings and feedback with the community as well as provide project architects with the information to design concepts of this new housing. A What We Heard Report will be shared with the community in November 2019.
