The site for this proposed non-market housing project has been empty for many years. It’s been in the news recently as the location of a protest ‘tent city’.
The architect is Patrick R. Stewart Architect, an architectural firm with a First Nations community development focus. The client is Terra Housing Consultants on behalf of Lu’ma Native BCH Housing Society. There will be 26 2-bed units with two retail units on the main floor. The design is intended to reflect cultural expression in the form of a traditional gable-end longhouse. The architect notes that this traditional form reflects Indigenous architecture of the West Coast.
