Our Hart Road development will feature a number of unique rental opportunities and an abundance of amenities for the whole city to enjoy.
From one-bedroom accessible units to four bedroom units with two bathrooms, there will be a place that everyone would love to call home – and everyone will have a front door. To top it all off, our neighbourhood will feature office space, community spaces, creative retail opportunities, and some incredible public spaces as well.
Camponi Housing owns and maintains approximately 400 homes in Saskatoon through our various affordable rental programs. There remains a large waiting list of families still searching for adequate housing – especially larger families in need of more space, and individuals living with mobility issues or in need of completely accessible housing.
Camponi’s answer to this need has been to pursue this development by starting with the needs of the tenants first, and designing the neighbourhood and supports around those foundational needs. By gathering the input and experience of our tenants, we have developed a plan that will become a vibrant and sustainable project that will lift up not only the residents in these homes but also the community around it.
Housing provides the foundation for a high quality of life for families and communities, and the impacts of this investment into Saskatoon will go far beyond the 150+ family complex that will be built.
SaskNative Rentals begins construction on the Hart Road supportive housing project.
The largest Indigenous housing entity in the province, SaskNative Rentals, broke ground today on the most progressive build in its 50-year history. This project is a model of social innovation – designed with tenants and driven by their needs first, SaskNative Rentals and their sister company Camponi Housing are building a vibrant and sustainable community that provides a high quality of life for families.
“As a Métis woman I have some understanding of the challenges that face our communities, I have lived them,” says Angela Bishop, SaskNative Rentals/Camponi Trustee. “I am well aware of the adverse impacts of intergenerational trauma on our citizens, families and communities. Our hope with Hart Road is to create opportunities and a space to promote intergenerational wellness, empowerment, and a sense of community. However, this project is not just about building a Métis community – it is also about strengthening relationships between communities. It is about reconciliation. We want to be good neighbours, we want to be welcomed to the neighborhood and we are committed to making positive contributions to the neighborhood.”
The Hart Road supportive housing project will have a total residential space of 142,453 sq. ft and 164 homes, including completely accessible residences, as well as retail, office and public spaces. The first phase of the project, representing a $40+ million investment in the community, will provide 73 new supportive homes. 17 new homes will be totally accessible for those with mobility issues in Saskatoon, with an additional 17 offering partial accessibility.
Phase 1 will have 73 rental units, broken down below.
