Residential | CLARK BUILDERS – THE MUSTARD SEED The Final Stretch CLARK BUILDERS IS CLOSE TO FINISHING THE MUSTARD SEED JOB IN CALGARY. BY MARTA JIMÉNEZ-LUTTER A ll is well that ends well. When The Mustard Seed, a Calgary-based nonprofit organization that provides housing and other services to homeless people, proposed a development of affordable housing in Calgary in 2006, the surrounding community did not embrace the project. But by engaging the community and the neighbors in open and transparent communication – and establishing parameters for how employees and clients of The Mustard Seed would operate within the community – the charitable organization received approval from the city in 2009. The construction phase of the project began 32 CONSTRUCTION-TODAY.COM JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2013 in July 2011 when the office building that previously occupied the space for the new development was demolished, and work began to erect a 12-story building with three levels of underground parking. The exterior façade of the building was designed to blend in with surrounding structures on the west side, and to brighten the neighborhood with white paneling on the north and south sides of the residential complex. Team Work Financial support for the Mustard Seed project came from the federal, provincial and city governments, which provided $35 million.
