Vancouver is in a housing crisis and more than 2,000 people across the city of Vancouver are experiencing homelessness.
Creating warm, safe homes with supports for people who are at risk of or are experiencing homelessness in our communities continues to be a top priority for BC Housing and the City of Vancouver.
In an effort to reduce homelessness, a new building has been proposed for a site at the northeast corner of Arbutus and West 8th Avenue.
Located immediately north of the future Arbutus SkyTrain Station, the vacant lots under consideration are at 2086-2098 West 7th Avenue and 2091 West 8th Avenue.
The proposed building would be 12 storeys and provide approximately 140 studio homes with supports for single adults, seniors and people with disabilities who are experiencing or at risk of homelessness in the local community.
Starting March 1st, the community will be able to review and provide comments on the development proposal online here. Neighbours to the proposed homes are invited to learn more through virtual small group dialogue sessions on March 9th, 10th, and 11th.
