Rhoda Kaellis Residence

Lookout Emergency Aid Society
1105 Royal Avenue, New Westminster
New Construction
Wood Frame
LEED Certified

Terra worked with Lookout on this redevelopment of the site of the Garfield Hotel.  The new building houses low, fixed income New Westminster residents who have a history of homelessness and who can live independently but who will benefit from support and assistance in developing basic life skills. Named for the late Rhoda Kaellis, a tireless champion of the homeless, it features 11 transitional housing units as well as 13 permanent independent housing units.  The main floor has communal space with a lounge and community kitchen.  The Residence was certified LEED Gold in 2012.
