Report from our Building Project Chair

The Vancouver Island Free Daily printed an article about our Sunfield project when the City of Nanaimo issued the development permit for two new buildings, comprising 124 future independent living apartments for seniors at 1145 Seafield Crescent in Nanaimo’s hospital area. An artist’s sketch is provided as part of this article.
