Steveston Seniors Home Supported by $5.9 Million BC Housing Grant

Richmond News reported on the inspiration for an independent living community which came from the Steveston Buddhist Temple.

"A 107-unit seniors home in Steveston held its official opening last week a year after it opened.

The independent living facility Wisteria Place, whose rents run from about $2,750 for a studio apartment to about $4,600 for a two-bedroom home, was built on land leased from the Steveston Buddhist Temple.

In fact, the idea for the facility was “birthed” by the Buddhist temple, with planning beginning in 2013, explained Kelvin Higo, board chair of the Wisteria Place Health and Housing Society."
