Community Owned Kensington

We are thrilled to formally announce that with the help of Councillor Mike Layton and other community support, we have acquired the building at 54-56 Kensington Ave, and as of June 1st, 2021, it is in community hands!

The building has 12 existing residential units, most of which are currently affordable housing, as well as 5 commercial spaces, including a beloved variety store.

We have launched a GoFundMe campaign to support the remaining small gap in financing, as well as repairs and maintenance needed in the first year.
