The Greater Victoria Housing Society and the Greater Victoria Rental Development Society partnered for construction of a 68-unit rental apartment building on the same property as five high end townhomes. A model of a self sustaining business plan, this location has both affordable and market rentals along with a home ownership module.
The four-storey rental building uses a blend of wood and synthetic materials which gives the project a clean, modern look and complements the surrounding neighbourhood and landscape.
The location was chosen in part for its proximity to downtown and access to parks and waterways.
This building is the second partnership for these two agencies; the first was Loreen Place at 40 Gorge Road. Both projects are changing the look of the neighbourhood with an updated approach to affordable and in–demand housing.
