124 Powell Street

This narrow lot has a proposal for 20 units of affordable housing to be developed by MPA Society, already based in Gastown next door to this currently vacant site. The Society works to support people with serious and persistent mental illness.

NSDA’s design for the building had to incorporate light wells for both adjacent buildings, so the site is limited to twenty units, each of 325 sq. ft. There’s a main floor amenity room overlooking the street, and a communal laundry.
