Housing Development Projects
Zerin Family Apartments, Toronto, 1978
Zerin's first housing project in 1978 was an acquisition/rehabilitation of a 15-unit apartment building in Toronto. Some refugee families who escaped oppressive regimes in Central and South American countries became its first tenants, forming a supportive community for one another. While this apartment building is no longer managed by Zerin, it continues to house some next-generation members of those original families.
Zerin Place Seniors Apartments, London, 1985
Zerin's second housing project in 1985 was a new construction of a 40-unit apartment building in London for seniors. Despite the age of the building, it is in excellent condition and well maintained. Zerin Place is highly regarded for its appearance, its outstanding management and its strong financial position. Zerin Place is meant to be 'a place to call home' for its senior tenants and they stay on average for over nine years.
Zerin Place on Clarke Road, London, Ontario, 2021
Zerin's third housing project, its second in London, was new construction of a beautifully designed 65 unit, four-story apartment building with added accessibility features, including wide doorways throughout. A third of the units are barrier free, with several others easily convertible to barrier free.
The building opened in September 2021 for tenants of mixed incomes. Half of the units are designated as affordable (below median market rent) and the other half as market rent, based on CMHC rental data. This is Zerin's first project with some supportive housing units, having partnered with a few social agencies which support their clients' independent living.
