CREATING POSITIVE SPACES WHILE MAINTAINING TOP QUALITY AND CORE PRINCIPLES
Expected Completion September 2017
Construction is nearing completion on a 48-unit development at 1720 Kingsway in Vancouver. The project is one of four sites being developed on City of Vancouver-owned land, in a partnership between the Vancouver Community Land Trust Foundation, co-op and non-profit housing providers, Vancity Credit Union, BC Housing and the City of Vancouver.
Sanford Housing Society is an equity partner in this innovative Land Trust project and will be responsible for ongoing operation of the 48 one-bedroom units designated for low-income singles. In a partnership with the Kettle Friendship Society, half of the units in the building will be provided for people living with mental illness.
