Roddan Lodge – 124 Dunlevy Avenue

124-dunlevy-render

In the recent announcement of new non-market housing to be funded by BC Housing, the largest project was Roddan Lodge. There’s an existing 156 unit building here, built 40 years ago and designed by Waisman Architectural Group. It is described as ‘nearing the end of its building life’, and is six storeys high. The replacement, designed by DYS Architecture would be 11 storeys, with 213 units including replacement welfare rate units and affordable studio, one, and two bedroom rental units.

The ground floor will provide a new space for the Evelyne Saller Centre to be relocated from its current space at 320 Alexander Street. The existing building will be deconstructed, and the new building will be much more energy efficient and built over one level of parking.
