People in the District of North Vancouver will have more affordable housing options, with construction underway on a new 90-unit development.

“The housing crisis has meant many North Shore community members are struggling to find affordable housing and make ends meet,” said Bowinn Ma, MLA for North Vancouver-Lonsdale. “This project will provide 90 individuals and families with the kind of housing security that everyone deserves to have. I’m excited to see it break ground, and know there’s more to do.”

Located at 267 Orwell St. near the Phibbs bus exchange, the six-storey, wood-frame building will replace two aging single-family homes. Named Salal Apartments, the project will provide one-, two- and three-bedroom homes for moderate- and low-income individuals and families, as well as outdoor amenity spaces, including play areas and community gardens.
