CCOC is proud to announce we are one of the component development partners in RendezVous LeBreton Group’s bid to the National Capital Commission for the redevelopment of LeBreton Flats. With our history as a recognized leader in affordable rental housing and our commitment to the Centretown, LeBreton Flats, Hintonburg and Dalhousie neighbourhoods, we think we’re the natural choice to ensure meaningful inclusion of affordable housing on this site.
The LeBreton Flats site has a history as a diverse, working class neighbourhood, and it’s only fitting that its redevelopment should continue that tradition. CCOC has deep roots in the community, with almost 100 homes at its southern edge. We’ve got a long-term investment in creating a successful mixed income, inclusive community that meets the needs of residents and visitors alike.
CCOC has decades of experience in greening our operations and pushing toward green new construction techniques. We’ve also got expertise in fostering sustainable behaviour among residents and building operators, with a full time Sustainability Facilitator on staff and a seasonal Garden Facilitator. Our Green Commitments pledge program engages tenants and staff to consider the impacts of their everyday actions on the environment. Since January 2015, more than 4150 pledges have been made.
We have a long history of creating accessible homes. Working with our community support partners, CCOC integrates accessibility into its developments to provide barrier-free properties and tailored accessible living spaces. 145 Clarence is a great example, providing 14 wheelchair accessible homes along with 24-hour attendant care since 1993.
We truly believe that affordable rental housing and affordable home ownership are critical to the success of a mixed community. We applaud the RendezVous LeBreton Group’s commitment to affordable housing in this development.READ MORE
