Affordable Options for Every Income Level.
We are pleased to be moving forward with construction on our Lendrum site in south west Edmonton. This beautiful new affordable housing complex has been designed and developed with community input and in partnership with the City of Edmonton to meet the needs of those waiting for affordable housing in our city. We know that this is a place that our tenants will be proud to call home.
Our Lendrum complex will consist of 120 homes, with about half of the units being 3 bedroom apartments. The complex will be a mix of rental levels, including market-rate, near market and community housing. Amenities include underground parking, in-suite laundry, common room, courtyard, nearby schools, LRT access, and much more.

Thank you for joining the conversation.
We are committed to a planning and redevelopment process that is inclusive, transparent and driven by our values. Over the course of this project we engaged residents, families, neighbours, businesses, organizations, community partners and the public in a meaningful way that generated a shared sense of commitment to this site redevelopment. Through collaboration and engagement we have the opportunity to have a positive impact in the community that this housing complex is a part of.
Throughout this engagement we:
- Ensured the timely sharing of project information that provided all stakeholders and interested parties with complete, objective and reliable information,
- Engaged and gathered feedback, opinions and perspectives at various stages in the development of the site, and
- Clearly demonstrated our commitment to engaging the public and incorporating their input into the project.
Using a phased approach, between October 2016 and April 2017 we hosted open houses and public meetings in the Lendrum community to enable people to contribute to and be engaged in this project. Through these consultations we shared information and provided people with the opportunity to learn, ask questions, share thoughts, discuss ideas and review concepts.
