Mayor Gregor Robertson and Council have approved a new social housing project in Oakridge that will bring 46 new affordable rental homes targeted toward seniors to the neighbourhood. The social housing, approved at public hearing last night, will be owned by the Oakridge Lutheran Church and Catalyst Community Development Society. The building replaces the existing one-storey church and delivers 15 studio, 15 one-bedroom and 16 two-bedroom homes.
Mayor Robertson and Council made progress in adding more supply to the City’s rental market at last night’s public hearing, approving two new projects under the City’s Rental 100 policy that will add 200 new homes in East Vancouver. Combined, the new projects will provide 29 studios, 105 one-bedroom, and 66 new family homes.
