Phase I  -  Duplexes

In 1987, GPRS built 5 duplexes in the Crystal Ridge area in Grande Prairie.  They were the first wheelchair accessible housing units built north of Edmonton.   

There are six 2 bedroom units and four 3 bedroom units. Each unit is equipped with an automatic opener for the back outside door.  Hallways and doorways are wide enough for wheelchairs. Each bathroom has a wheel-in shower and a regular tub, with grab bars in necessary areas.   Kitchens are fully wheelchair accessible, with such features as countertop stoves and wall ovens. The countertop is low for wheelchair access. Each unit has a washer and a drier.

These features make the duplexes truly accessible homes.
