Aloft aims small home plans at Ontario

August 9, 2022



A new Niagara-based company, Aloft, is launching a tiny home initiative as an affordable alternative to high-priced homes across southern Ontario.
Aloft is the brainchild of three former Habitat for Humanity executives who wanted to explore the possibilities and functionality of small spaces to address big problems. The company is planning to help build housing capacity across southern Ontario with its sustainable tiny homes.
Aloft creates plug and play “flexible” units in its St. Catharines warehouse that are easily transportable and scalable.
“The lack of housing is a growing problem that can’t be solved using yesterday’s thinking or solutions,” said Aloft president Keith Gowans. “We offer a solution to a pressing societal issue.”
Aloft specializes in putting underutilized urban spaces to work and focuses on building upward. The company builds energy efficient, already furnished homes that can easily be added to existing properties both on ground and elevated. With “Versa” as its first model, parking lots, storage areas, underutilized land, and other spaces can now become premium residential accommodations.
“We believe by intensifying the urban core with mixed housing solutions, communities will flourish,” said Craig Brown, director at Aloft. “The pieces are in place to achieve something truly great.”
