BC Housing and Vancouver Coastal Health, and the City of Vancouver have proposed 97 social-housing units and a detox centre in the Grandview Woodlands neighbourhood in Vancouver. The mixed-use 10-storey building includes:
- social enterprise space at grade;
- withdrawal management centre operated by Vancouver Coastal Health, including up to 20 transitional units;
- 97 social housing units;
- floor space ratio (FSR) of 3.07;
- maximum building height of 30.5 m/100 ft. (fronting Clark Drive) and 19.8 m/65 ft. (fronting McLean Drive); and
- 39 car and 100 bicycle parking spaces.
More info on the project here.
But the project has faced strong opposition around the height of the building that could result in a significant reduction of units, delay, or worse. These 97 units will provide much needed homes for people struggling to find affordable housing. We need to tell the City of Vancouver & BC Housing that we support and welcome social housing in our neighbourhoods and across Vancouver.
