Opened in 2010, this centre combines a variety of services — housing, childcare, library and recreational facilities. Although relatively new, the centre is already used at peak capacity due to the rapid growth of the surrounding areas. Thoughtful planning has resulted in a number of multi-functional spaces with good storage and expandability, two large kitchens, and a rooftop child-care centre for three age groups. There is a small on-site café, an outdoor plaza area, and secure open areas on the second floor.
