A beautiful site for Kanata's first Masjid & Centre!
Finding the right property for our future home was a painstaking process. There were important factors that we were looking for, such as location, price and size, which were very difficult to find in our growing area.
After years of searching, we purchased an amazing property on Sandhill Road in 2016, alhamdulillah!
Here are some of the highlights:
✓ Very affordable: Just over $900,000
✓ 2 acres: Manageable & efficient size with potential for growth
✓ Centrally located in Morgan’s Grant/Shirley’s Brook area of Kanata (near March Rd. & Klondike Rd.)
✓ Minutes from hundreds of tech firms employing many Muslims
✓ Walking distance from many Muslim homes, public transit, parks & fields
✓ Support from city officials for intended use
✓ Existing 4000 sq. ft. structure for initial use before construction of new Masjid & Centre
✓ Revenue-generation through solar panels selling power to the electrical grid
In the fall of 2018, the adjacent property (L-shaped with frontage on Klondike Rd. and Sandhill Rd.) was purchased as well, alhamdulillah. Here are some of the highlights of this new property:
✓ Borders on our first property
✓ 2 acres: Together, we now have a comfortable 4 acres of land surrounded by many Muslim homes and minutes away from hundreds of Muslim workers
✓ Revenue from leased daycare on-site, which is operated independently, will help cover expenses of new Masjid & Centre facility, Insha Allah
✓ Much-needed room for additional parking and future needs
