Not there yet, but move-in is approaching!
What are we building at the corner of King Albert St. and Marmont St.?
We are building a Sustainable Church space for our congregation and 75 Units of much needed Affordable Mixed Rental Housing with Studio, 1, 2, & 3 bedroom apartments.
When will it be completed?
Completion date is slated for early fall, 2020. People are working hard on the site and behind the scenes to move the project along as responsibly as possible. We look forward to moving into our beautiful new church space and meeting our new neighbours! In the meantime, we continue to worship, pray, learn, and grow at our temporary space at 825 St. Laurence St. in Coquitlam. All are welcome!
When can I apply for one of the rental apartments and to whom do I apply?
We have been told that applications will be received beginning 3 months prior to completion. Application will be made to the Housing Society and information on how to obtain an application will be on our church website as soon as we receive the information.
Why are we doing this repurposing?
