New PACE supportive housing - opening soon

New PACE accessible supportive housing will be opening in May 2016 in what was the Pan Am/Para Pan Am athletes’ village.  These are the first new supportive housing units that PACE has opened in 20-years!

The building is owned and managed by social service charitable organization - Fred Victor.  The goal for the building is to provide permanent housing especially for single adults, youth and families with high needs for affordable housing and on-site support services.

The building, located at 20 Prince Street in the West Don Lands (known as the Canary District), contains 108 units and meets LEED Gold standards for building design, construction, operation and maintenance of green developments.

PACE has made commitments for the entire PACE available units and the prospective tenants are anxiously waiting to move in.
