VANCOUVER—Work is underway on a new affordable rental housing building for Vancouver’s Kitsilano neighbourhood.

The project, located at 1807 Larch St., is a partnership between the province through BC Housing, the city and Jameson Development Corp. Once completed, the five-storey development will be a mixed-use building with affordable rental homes for moderate- to middle-income households.

The building will feature studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom units. Twenty per cent of the units will be tenanted under the city’s Below-Market Rental Housing Policy. The other units will be tenanted under HousingHub’s Provincial Rental Supply Program for middle-income households. The property will also feature indoor and outdoor amenity spaces on the fifth floor, a child play area, rooftop access for residents, bike storage and a dog wash.

Completion and occupancy for the project at 1807 Larch St. are anticipated in spring 2023. (FULL STORY HERE– CRED DCN-JOC News Services)
