HomeSpace Society 5th Avenue Apartments

July 6, 2020

Affordable housing for those who need it most.


HomeSpace Society is a charitable real estate developer, property owner, and manager with close to 500 units of housing in over 20 communities in Calgary. HomeSpace’s newest project, located at 933 5th Avenue SW will include 74 units of rental apartments for single adults, including 16 barrier-free units. The urban residential tower is nine-storeys over 59,000 ft2 and features a single level of commercial retail space at-grade.

The project meets minimum accessibility universal design and adaptability criteria, as per the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC). The building also features sustainable initiatives, including enhanced envelope performance in excess of the National Energy Code of Canada standards.

CANA also developed a building model for the structural and mechanical systems, and supplied a clash detection report to HomeSpace and the design team. Using the report, the design team made several modifications, which we expect will minimize RFIs and changes during construction.
