Seeing clearly as Ambrosia’s 3rd-storey gets its windows

The project is still coming along as it moves to be ready for residents in 2022

Work on the Ambrosia affordable housing development in Keremeos is continuing to progress at a steady speed.

Over the last week, the glass windows on the building have begun being installed.

Now that the windows are installed, work on the drywall, electrical and siding for the development can move forward.

The project is expected to be completed and ready for people to move in by early 2022.

Once the building is completed, it will provide 43 units, as well as space for some of the the Lower Similkameen Community Services Society’s programs.

Since the groundbreaking for the project in March 2020, the housing development has steadily moved along. After the first year, the project was on its second-storey and it is now up to the third and final storey, which will be accessible via stairs or the village’s first elevator.
