Kubica Property Demolished

Today, the former dwelling and shop of Kubica Glassworks was demolished.

This is the final piece of property acquired to complete the Pleasant Hill Village project. The City began acquiring property in Pleasant Hill in 2007.

The demolition is another step closer to assembling a development site for K.C. Charities Inc.
K.C. Charities intends to construct a 75 unit Seniors' housing complex on this site, known as 'Parcel E' in the redevelopment plan. Plans are to begin construction in late summer 2010.

Cenith's housing development is under construction in the background.

On June 17, 2010, the Affordable New Home Development Foundation and the Pleasant Hill Ventures Corp. launched the first new units in the Pleasant Hill Village project. Minister Donna Harpauer, Councillor Pat Lorje, Alan Thomarat from the Home Builders Association and Keith Hanson from the Affordable New Home Development Foundation provided a large gathering with an overview to launch this significant project.

Located at 1505 & 1507 19th Street West, the project is the result of a joint venture between professional home builders - River Ridge Homes and Ehrenburg Homes. Twenty-four family-oriented units with energy saving features and high quality construction are now available.

The units are available to the general public and affordably priced between $189,900 and $240,000. Financial assistance is available to those homebuyers who earn less than $52,000 per year.
