Coral Place: A Non-Profit Housing Community
Coral Place is a 103 unit non-profit housing building located at 55 Glenn Hawthorne Boulevard, near Hurontario Street and Eglinton Avenue in Mississauga. With 35 1-bedroom units, 77 2-bedroom units and 14 3-bedroom units, the 8-storey apartment building has a diverse mix of families, singles, and seniors. Built by the Federation of Chinese Canadian Professionals Non-Profit Housing Corporation under the Provincial Non-Profit Housing Program in 1993, Coral Place has a large proportion of Chinese residents. Sixty-five units are subsidized and their residents pay 30% of their income in rent, and 31 have market level rents. Five of the 2-bedroom units are wheelchair accessible.
About half of the current residents have been in the building since it opened in 1993. The Tenants Association at Coral Place organizes regular events for the building’s community, such as a Chinese New Years dinner at a local restaurant and summer barbeques. The common room is popular with older residents as a place to spend the day reading and socializing with other residents.
