Around Town Monday June 14 – Trico Homes

  • Sunday, June 13, 2021

On Thursday, June 17, founder and CEO of Trico Group, Wayne Chiu, will relocate the company offices from 11 Avenue S.W. to the new Kingsland Junction multi-family/mixed use Trico development on Macleod Trail S. Trico has run its head office out of the two-storey building west of 10 Street S.W. for the past 20 years but with a current staff of 80 it’s time for a move to larger space.

Typical of the generosity of one of this city’s most caring businessmen, Chiu has offered the soon-to-be empty 30,000-square-foot building to Women In Need Society (WINS), at a very charitable rate. WINS supports vulnerable women and their children, so they can grow and contribute to the community. It has a shopping alternative, investing in the social well being of the city, and will operate a large thrift store over the entire ground level. Upstairs will house its offices and space to run its social enterprise programs.
