Site C apartments set for grand opening

BC Hydro and BC Housing are set to hold a grand opening for a new 50-unit apartment building in Fort St. John.

Construction on the six-storey, wood frame building began next to the Fort St. John fire hall in 2017, and is part of the city’s agreement with BC Hydro on the Site C dam. The opening is scheduled Friday, Nov. 15, at 11 a.m.

The apartments include 35 two-bedroom and 15 three-bedroom units. Five units will be wheelchair accessible.

The building was designed by Low Hammond Row Architects based in Victoria, and built by Western Canadian Property Group. It's the largest passive house-certified building in B.C., according to BC Hydro. 

During the dam’s construction, 40 units will be made available for rent by BC Hydro for employees working on the dam, while 10 units will be available for the community's use.

The full 50 units will be turned over to the community for low- and moderate-income families when construction of the dam is complete.
