This is completely unrelated to the Shaw Main Streets post, but didn't know how to e-mail Shaw Rez directly...

Current status of Kelsey Gardens? In limbo? Does anyone know anything about a timeline for residents moving out?

No one seems to have mentioned anything about it in many months...but it appears at least 1/2 empty at this point...which might be worse than having it fully far as being a magnet for crime that is...

Anon - I'm unaware of any new reports on the status of Kelsey Gardens. I think I remember Off Seventh (linked in my Shaw Blogs) contacted them a while back and likely has more info. I'll see what I can find. Rumor was that KG goes offline in 2008.

As always, feel free to contact me at
