Intracorp has partnered with the Finnish Canadian Rest Home Association (FCRHA) to design and construct a seniors’ rental apartment building. In conjunction to the rental building, Intracorp intends to build and sell a townhome community on the remainder of the site. This project was approved by the City of Coquitlam and construction will begin August 2017 with an anticipated completion date of Spring 2019.
Recognizing the trend towards intelligent urbanization, Intracorp has concentrated its efforts on bringing new homes to where people actually want to live. Today, every home we create is designed to fit in an established neighbourhood – and enrich that neighbourhood’s profile at the same time.
You’ll see this principle at work at Black+Whites and Nelson on Foster in Coquitlam. You’ll see it at Vista Place and Ventana in North Vancouver, at Jacobsen in South Main and at Chancellor Place at UBC.
Canadian-owned, Intracorp has earned widespread recognition as a premier designer and builder of quality homes that provide lasting lifestyle and investment value. With more than 25 years experience, At Intracorp, we are committed to building extraordinary real estate communities and creating an extraordinary experience for everyone.
Formed in 1958, FCRHA is a not-for-profit, charitable organization created in response to the Finnish immigrants who moved to Canada to work in the primary industries. A concerned group of Finnish immigrants recognized a need for affordable housing and quality care for seniors and the retired workers, and felt a responsibility to look after them. As such, the FCRHA was created with the goal to provide superior care for seniors of Finish and Estonian ancestry, and other seniors in need who have reached the point in their lives when they require a higher level of care.
In 1979, FCRHA approached the City of Coquitlam with a proposal to develop the site into seniors’ housing but the proposal was postponed due to the lack of infrastructure. FCRHA went on to develop two facilities: the Finnish Home in southern Vancouver, and the Finnish Manor in Burnaby. The partnership with Intracorp means that their vision for senior housing in Coquitlam is coming to fruition.
The site was previously owned by Kusti and Leonda Koski who farmed and raised turkeys on the property. The five-acre far was a popular destination to pick-up turkeys for the festive season. In the very early days of founding the FCRHA, the Koski home was the location of numerous fundraising and social gatherings. In 1967, the Koski’s donated their land to FCRHA to assist then in achieving their organization mendate of providing homes for seniors.
