Construction starts on Kitsilano affordable housing project

VANCOUVER—Work is underway on a new affordable rental housing building for Vancouver’s Kitsilano neighbourhood.

The project, located at 1807 Larch St., is a partnership between the province through BC Housing, the city and Jameson Development Corp. Once completed, the five-storey development will be a mixed-use building with affordable rental homes for moderate- to middle-income households.

“We are honoured to be part of this amazing provincial program,” said Tony Pappajohn of Jameson Development Corp. in a statement. “As a family-owned, Vancouver-based company, we are committed to Vancouver as an affordable, desirable and inclusive city to live in. HousingHub financing means we can build these important homes sooner and make them even more affordable for our future residents.”

The building will feature studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom units. Twenty per cent of the units will be tenanted under the city’s Below-Market Rental Housing Policy. The other units will be tenanted under HousingHub’s Provincial Rental Supply Program for middle-income households. The property will also feature indoor and outdoor amenity spaces on the fifth floor, a child play area, rooftop access for residents, bike storage and a dog wash.

“Thanks to Vancouver’s innovative moderate-income housing program and BC Housing’s financing, this project is delivering 68 much-needed homes for middle-income residents like hospitality workers, seniors and artists,” said Kennedy Stewart, Vancouver mayor. “Partnerships like this mean more of our neighbours can stay close to the people and places they love, building a Vancouver that works for all of us.”

Completion and occupancy for the project at 1807 Larch St. are anticipated in spring 2023.
