Kensington Road Legion Branch partners with Developer

Legion Branch No. 264 on Calgary’s Kensington Road is the latest branch of Canada’s largest veteran support service to secure its long-term future by monetizing valuable land assets, thanks to a unique partnership with Truman Homes.

As the branch prepares to open the doors of its new facility to members, the project team involved says partnerships between asset rich non-profits and developers looking to densify inner-city neighbourhoods are viable and valuable to both parties.

Since all things, whether made of gold or Styrofoam, are really just made of atoms, and since atoms are everywhere, it's entirely possible to make toys and video games seemingly appear out of thin air. Clearly Santa's bag is a nanotech factory that can spontaneously build your gifts on the fly. It's the only explanation that makes sense.
