An architect's vision for Mountain View Villa, a 40-unit apartment building in Dauphin that will offer affordable housing to seniors on land facing Riding Mountain National Park.

DAUPHIN — The board of directors for Mountain View Villa is making affordable housing for seniors a reality in Dauphin.

With funding from Manitoba Housing and other sources plus donations, construction will soon begin on a beautifully designed 40-unit life lease apartment building situated on three acres of land facing Riding Mountain National Park.

Mountain View Villa will have four handicapped accessible units, all units will have balconies and there is a common area on each floor. In front of the building, the retention pond will be situated in the middle of a green space park for tenants and visitors to enjoy the trails and nature at its finest.

The board studied Bolton Place, a seniors complex in Virden, during its building stage and following its completion, and decided that it would be an excellent model for Dauphin to follow.

T.L. Penner Construction from Kola has been hired to build Mountain View Villa, which is scheduled to be complete by mid-summer.

With 30 units spoken for, the board was looking for the last 10 to sell by Christmas.
