Awarded ‘Best Apartment Rental Community – Alberta’
The importance of affordable and accessible housing is sometimes lost on people, but for the people at Inglewood Housing Corporation (IHC), it has formed the basis of their incredibly successful operation. IHC offers perpetual affordability and a cooperative management approach for active adults seeking affordable living.
CALGARY, AB, February 24, 2020 – Located just off the Bow River, Inglewood House offers an approach that sets it apart from the rest of the crowd. For the team working at this residential rental community, the development of community has proven key to its continued success.
Affordable housing revolves finding a solution that suits the needs of individuals and allows them to live to their fullest potential. Safe and stable housing allows for the development of truly inclusive communities that work for citizens of all incomes.
Currently, Inglewood House is host to active seniors, nurse’s aides, hotel clerks, teaching assistants, retired lawyers and transit operators to name but a few. Thanks to the efforts of the Inglewood Housing team, a large community space in the building ensures that everyone can share in shared events. The result is a group of people who act as an active community, helping and caring for each other.
One of the many advantages of living at Inglewood House is the close proximity to public transit. It’s a carefully planned development designed to encourage the use of existing infrastructure to the best of its ability.
This makes it a very attractive prospect, given that the Inglewood House is ideally situated one block from Inglewood’s iconic 9th Avenue, and tantalisingly close to a range of nature reserves.
For those working within the organization, and those who live in its housing, there is a culture of approachability that is key to the development’s success. This makes it possible to continually regenerate this 40-year-old non-profit so that it can remain as agile as a modern-day start-up.
When talking about housing, it is easy to forget a holistic approach. Inglewood House manages to excel both at the personal needs of residents as well as a broader perspective. Linking the organization to community is not only what has made it unique, but what has made it into a tremendous success.
