Inglewood House - A Step in the Right Direction for Affordable Housing in Calgary

A few days ago Inglewood House officially opened. On hand for the grand opening were community organization members, government officials and investors from private sectors. Inglewood House is a complex that offers 43 units of affordable housing.

This new complex rises 3 stories high and is an elegant and energy efficient building. It's a modern facility that is a part of a plan to build 5,000 housing units that are affordable for Calgary residents. It took a lot of time, money and hard work to put it all together and the ribbon cutting ceremony was an emotional end to a dedicated effort.

There were roadblocks in the way to getting the building constructed but in the end it was all worth it. Two years ago, there were outdated cottages on the land at the beginning of the groundbreaking. Now, there is a modern facility in that area that was built with a cost estimate of approximately $131,000 per door.

Calgary is dealing with a deficit when it comes to affordable housing and Inglewood House is just a part of the funding plan put together by the federal government. The plan is to build affordable units in cities that are facing a deficit in cheaper housing options. The funding plan has set aside more than $1 billion to help deal with this problem across the country.

As the cost of real estate continues to climb in Calgary, it becomes more apparent that cheaper housing options need to be added to the city. While many people can afford to own their own home, there are those that are struggling to meet the higher rental prices and purchase costs associated with living in this city. While Inglewood House doesn't completely handle the entire problem, it is another step forward in the right direction.
