MPC approves six-story addition adjacent to Points West Living

Red Deer’s Municipal Planning Commission (MPC) has given the green light for a new addition to an existing senior’s home on the west side.

A development permit was granted Tuesday for a six-story, 150 unit assisted living facility adjacent to Points West Living on Taylor Drive, north of 67 Street.

The new facility will be connected to the north side of the current Points West Living building completed in 2016 and contain commercial uses, as a minimum, on the ground floor, with the units themselves a combination of living and long-term care units.

Commercial uses anticipated include administrative offices for the operation of the building, a hair salon, daycare facility, lease space and a multi-purpose room available for rent by the public. Officials add however that all commercial uses would front onto Taylor Drive.
