Carey Place, which offers housing to low-income seniors and seniors in need, will open at Mount View Heights with a celebration at 2 p.m.

All 55 units will be managed and operated by Baptist Housing Society. The four-storey building is the third project to be built on the Carey Road site, the former home of Mount View school.

Mount View Heights is a $100-million project that includes plans for a seven-storey 244-bed residential care facility, a six-storey 112-unit independent seniors living home, and a commercial building.

Already open are Olympic Vista Apartments, a 36-suite building providing transitional housing for previously homeless individuals aged 55 and over, and Vergo Townhouses, 14 homes that offer low rent to families making less than $64,000 a year.
