Edmonton Housing Project

Tanara McLean from the Edmonton Sun highlights Mike Holmes, a reality TV handyman, who is heading an affordable Edmonton housing project into a $22-million reality.  Holmes broke ground on the second phase of the Boyle Renaissance project, which consists of a 90-unit complex that will house Metis seniors and the disabled.  “The 120,000-square foot complex-located at 95 Street between 104 and 105 Avenue – will stand seven storeys high and boast green design technologies including shared heat and power systems and mould-resistant wood.”  The rooftop will have solar energy panels, which will make the complex a net-zero living space.  The roof will also have gardens that act as thermal barriers in the summer that will save on heat regulating costs.  “Three of the suites will be equipped with a state-of-the-art communication technology that will allow disabled tenants to control numerous aspects, like answering the door from just one control pad.”  Certain suites will have specialized showers, adjustable counter space, and enlarged rooms to accommodate wheelchairs.  The occupancy date is expected to be November 2013 in downtown Edmonton, Alberta.
