This project includes redevelopment of this site in a historic neighbourhood in Acton from a small group home to a supportive housing development with 12 one-bedroom apartments, common spaces, offices, and parking for 5 staff. The site includes a steep embankment which leads down to a former train spur. The design of the new building includes apartments on two storeys, with parking tucked behind the building below the second floor, and a walkout common room on the lower level.

There were many site constraints to work with for this site, but the ultimate design reflects the neighbourhood character while providing a safe, supportive home for twelve individuals. Construction is aiming to begin in 2023.
