Tutt Street Place

NOW Canada - "Tutt Street Place" - 2970 Tutt Street, Kelowna, BC

Completed Jul/2010

NOW Canada Project Design

Tutt Street Place will be operated by the NOW Canada Society and will offer a home, not just a place to live. This LEED Gold building will provide 39 larger family-type units of affordable, supportive living for women, with or without children, who have a proven financial need. These one, two and three bedroom apartments will offer a stable drug- and alcohol-free environment for single women and a secure home for moms with children. Affordable housing, in conjunction with support services, sets people up for success; therefore, an important feature of this project is the relocation of NOW’s offices onto the site.

Under this initiative, the City of Kelowna will provide the land lease with the Province of BC providing pre-development and capital costs associated with the construction, as well as on-going operational expenses. Other financial contributors to Tutt Street Place include the Real Estate Foundation of B.C., Connection Drug Rehabilitation Society and NOW Canada.
