Today's Quick Pic shows us the new YWCA Elm Centre that is being built at 87 Elm Street. Rising 17 storeys the centre, which will open later this year, will be a new home to woman escaping poverty, family violence, mental health issues and addiction.

The New YWCA Elm Centre

Designed by regionalArchitects and Hilditch Architect, the centre is the largest affordable housing project built in the city in more than a decade. What we really like about the project is that it is so colourful. This is exactly what Bay and Dundas needs, something this colourful in a sea of beige and brown. We'd like to see more developments like this.
