Congratulations MICAH for the completion of your 32 unit seniors and youth apartment building in Markham!
SHS Consulting was the development consultant for two affordable housing developments developed by MICAH in collaboration with 360°kids. The first was Tony Wong Place, a 120 unit apartment building completed in 2010, which includes 6 transitional beds designated for 360°kids’.
Ten years later, MICAH and 360°kids partnered on Larry Tod Place, a 32-unit apartment building that will provide much-needed housing for seniors and youth that are moving from their transitional housing programs into permanent housing. The inclusion of these two units for youth also provides for intergenerational experiences in the building.
