Flora Place Award

An update on Flora Place that I blogged about in detail here:Public Housing Continued: Flora Place.

I see that this month Flora Place won a national CMHC Housing Award for "Best Practices in Affordable Housing". (A pdf backgrounder on the development and award can be found
here.)

Congrats ! I think it's a neat model, not just for public housing but housing renewal in general. Not a brand new house in the burbs but also not a small apartment - something in the middle favouring people (ie seniors, people on small incomes) who can't afford the one, yet want more than the other.
