New, 2 comments


A new housing project was approved last night by City Council which will provide nearly 170 units of social/supportive housing and affordable rental housing. There will also be over 11,000 square feet of commercial space covering off two floors. Straight from Mayor Gregor Robertson, "This new project expands on the City's work to build urgently-needed new social and rental housing, creating new affordable housing for low-income residents and at the same time providing a balanced mix of middle-income housing in the neighbourhood." · Major social and rental housing project approved for Downtown Eastside [Vancity Buzz]
