Silvera for Seniors

Text Size

Jacques Site

The Jacques Site was first used for seniors’ housing in 1962, and was decommissioned in 2010.  Moving forward, Silvera’s intention is to ensure that the 13 acres are redeveloped in a way that creates a vibrant community for seniors, one that is fully integrated into an urban village concept that compliments the surrounding community.  Silvera’s vision is to create an inter-generational community, and this will require a uniquely designed, senior-focused urban environment.

The Jacques Site will provide diversified housing options for seniors, and will also include market housing for the community.  The integration of market housing is necessary so that Silvera, a non-profit organization, has the capital to redevelop and maintain the site as intended, while creating an integrated urban village that is a high-quality public area.

Silvera looks forward to working with the City of Calgary and the community through this process.
