For the past 25 years, Supportive Housing In Peel (SHIP) has been a leader in administering housing and specialized services within the Peel Region. SHIP provides a continuum of residential housing options to individuals living in over 800 households and is the owner of 5 buildings and 1 ground lease building throughout the Region of Peel, West Toronto and Dufferin County.
In 2012, SHIP was awarded a request for proposal from the Region of Peel to build affordable housing in the Peel Region. The proposed project was for the development of a 205 unit, affordable housing building at 247 Queen Street East in Brampton. This property is at the corner of Queen Street East and Hansen Road which is located on one of the most desirable economic corridors in Brampton. The property, known as Hansen has been designed in accordance to Region of Peel program requirements, along with the lower level development acting as a podium to the City of Brampton’s Urban Design Objectives for that area. This includes one ground level of retail space, one level of office and commercial space and 13 storeys of affordable residential housing that will include one, two and three bedroom suites with the top floor being allocated to building amenities.
