The much-anticipated Mount Douglas Manor affordable housing development on Arrow Road has neared the completion of the framing stage.
Designed by Number Ten Architecture to Built Green standards, the three-storey, 84-unit building is a first for local builders Città Construction. Città has built hundreds of single-family residential homes to Built Green standards but nothing to this size, said vice-president Mike Dalton.
“The economy of scale makes Built Green for this size of project even better,” Dalton said. “There are a few more boxes you can tick, and a few more options, but mostly it’s just doing the same things on a bigger scale.”
