Getting close to completion, here’s another of the 14 projects funded by the Province on land owned by the City of Vancouver to create non-market housing for the homeless and hard-to-house. Construction started in July 2011, so it’s taken about 18 months to build.
This one is designed by gBL Architects, and will be operated by the McLaren Housing Society with 110 suites, including three townhouses.
The block that it sits on has seen Alto, a new condo project to the north, and will be home to another condo project, a tower designed by Merrick Architecture to the south. That will be the entire half block rebuilt in only a few years. In the meantime the Odyssey Nightclub that used to be located here is still trying to find a new home.
