The Lower Columbia Affordable Housing Society is announcing that Rossland Yards, the newest residential building in Rossland is now accepting tenant applications.
People working in Rossland will soon have access to 37 new affordable rental homes. To qualify for tenancy, applicants must work for one or more Rossland employers, have recently retired from a Rossland business, or currently live in Rossland and work at a business in the Lower Columbia Region. Further eligibility criteria include household income and asset limits.
The project, located at 2350 Spokane Street, is a joint effort by the City of Rossland, the Lower Columbia Affordable Housing Society, BC Housing, Columbia Basin Trust and the Green Municipal Fund delivered by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities and funded by the Government of Canada.
Rossland City Hall will have offices on the main floor. The residential portion of the building has an amenity room and bike storage on the main floor, with three floors above containing the 37 residential suites. Laundry and storage are on site.
There are 21 one-bedroom units (two of which are accessible), 12 two-bedroom units and four three-bedroom units.
Construction is nearing completion and the building is expected to be ready for occupancy in March or April of 2023.
The Lower Columbia Affordable Housing Society is managing the residential portion of the building, and encourages potential tenants to apply now to secure their space. Applications are processed in the order they are received and each one is assessed on an individual basis.
