The Antigonish Affordable Housing Society (AAHS) is inviting the community to celebrate the Official Opening of Phase 2 of Riverside Estates, its multi-family complex on Hope Lane.
The opening will take place on Saturday, October 20th, from 10:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
People will be able to take tours of some of the new units and visit the new Community Room, made possible in large part by the Aviva Community Development Fund, awarded to AAHS last year thanks to the thousands of votes it received from supporters during the online competition.
Members of the AAHS Board, sponsors, and elected representatives will be on hand to discuss the initiative and the continued need for affordable housing in the town and county.
Riverside Estates, located at 12 Hope Lane (just off of Vincent’s Way), is now home to 25 people, ranging in age from 4 – 74. The 10 new one and two-bedroom apartments in Phase 2 add to the four units in Phase 1 which opened in March 2017.
The Society envisions having sufficient affordable, sustainable, environmentally efficient, community-supported housing available to people living on low incomes. Riverside Estates is its first initiative.
