Rocky View Foundation is announcing the opening of Abrio Place. The new seniors residence provides affordable housing options for elderly residents.
“We are thrilled to announce that Abrio Place is open for business”, said Carol Borschneck, CAO at Rocky View Foundation. “This project involved converting the former Hampton Inn and Suites on East Lake Avenue to a 93-unit seniors’ lodge."
Phase 1 of the project is complete, and residents are settling into their new home, Borschneck went on to explain. This phase involved building a commercial kitchen, dining room, safety upgrades, laundry rooms, and modifications to resident rooms.
Phase 2 is the development of the solarium, Maker’s Shop, and landscaping. Outdoor amenities will include a walking path, communal gardens, a gazebo, and outdoor recreation spaces and equipment. Subject to funding, phase 2 will be constructed over the next 10 months.
The Rocky View Foundation will be scheduling a grand opening ceremony to honour our many donors and funding partners.
"With their support, we were able to develop 93 lodge units at less than one-third the cost of new construction,” said Borschneck.
Rocky View Board member Susan Flowers stated, “I am very pleased to see this exceptional lodge serving the Airdrie community. "
“As mayor of Airdrie, I am excited to welcome the new seniors housing facility Abrio, a much-needed facility to our community," said Mayor Peter Brown. "The City of Airdrie was delighted to support the development of the property. We believe having access to safe, affordable, and right-sized housing for our senior community is vital as we grow as a community. Thank you to Rocky View Foundation CAO, Carol Borschneck for her work championing this project. I look forward to continuing on this journey to help solidify Airdrie as the place to be.”
