Eighty-nine affordable rental homes for families, seniors and individuals, along with a respite centre, will be available to people in North Vancouver as a redevelopment project begins.
The Province, through BC Housing, is investing $11 million for Phase 1 of the North Shore Neighbourhood House redevelopment project, to ensure affordability of 89 residential rental units. In partnership with the City of North Vancouver, Health and Home Care Society of BC (Care BC) and Catalyst Community Developments Society, the project aims to redevelop the aging facility and build a community hub integrating below-market housing with essential community services.
“Because of extensive housing investments made by our government over the past several years, nearly 1,000 new homes for low and middle-income individuals, families and students are now available or underway across North Vancouver,” said Bowinn Ma, MLA for North Vancouver-Lonsdale. “However, the need is great and we’re not slowing down. By supporting Phase 1 of the North Shore Neighbourhood House Redevelopment Project, we’ll help add 89 additional rental homes that can be afforded by families, seniors and individuals in an area where affordable homes are much needed.”
