A new modular housing project with 21 social housing units for women and women-led families was approved at last night's City Council Public Hearing. The project, located at 420 Hawks Avenue, will include seven micro dwellings and 14 two bedroom units built 'modular style', offering flexibility in design while providing high quality and efficient living space for families.
Affordable Housing and Support for Renters
The City of Vancouver is taking the next steps on a new solution for providing temporary housing for low-income residents. The Vancouver Affordable Housing Agency (VAHA) has proposed two initial sites to launch a modular housing pilot program: 1500 Main St. and 1060 Howe St.
The City of Vancouver is encouraged that today’s federal budget makes significant commitments to short and long-term investments in housing, transit and social infrastructure, and Mayor Robertson and the City are reaffirming their commitment to work closely with both the provincial and federal governments to expedite projects that put this funding to use.
