1102-1138 East Georgia Street

This is a rezoning proposal which would add 37 residential units (20% as social housing) in a 4-storey building designed by Ekistics Architecture. It’s in a location that’s currently in industrial use, (although most of this block is residential) but the Downtown Eastside plan allowed a small area near the railtracks known as Kiwassa to become residential, provided social housing is provided. The main floor would have creative/production commercial space – almost the same space there today in industrial units.

Almost all the units – 30 of them – are proposed as 3-bed family housing, and it will interesting to see if these are one of the rare examples of affordable family market housing that the plan was intended to provide.
