A series of building improvements at Welton Towers is benefiting residents.
Over the past three years, the Board of Welton Towers (Mission and District Senior Citizens Housing Association) has had the roof completely redone, the hot water system replaced and both elevators upgraded and retrofitted.
In the past year, a new in-house manager has taken over the day-to-day care within the building and surrounding grounds, and tenants have been encouraged to participate in the gardening around the building.
Many of the suites now boast new carpeting, and linoleum. In addition, some suites have new appliances.
The entire building has been equipped with modern, energy-efficient lighting, both in the suites and in the common areas, and all of the large windows are being replaced with energy-efficient, tinted windows to improve tenant comfort.
The board has spent a considerable amount of money to eradicate the bed bug problem with some success. There are still a few suites that are being worked on, but the situation has improved.
Axel Wiegieffe, building manager, has also recently completed the Crime Free Multi-Housing program.
There are currently a few suites available for rent for low income seniors (55+). Please contact Axel, the building manager, at 604-826-9104 for more information.
