Mayor and Council Approve 51 New Homes for Red Door Housing Society
July 12th, 2017, Vancouver Mayor’s Office
Mayor and Council have approved 51 new homes at Mi Casa (870 E.8th Ave), a social housing site operated by the Red Door Society. The new development, which includes a minimum 30 per cent of homes for tenants with income below $60,000, will replace the existing deteriorating 22 unit building, and deliver new affordable rental homes available on a month-to-month basis.
“Vancouver’s affordability crisis persists in affecting all incomes and neighbourhoods, but finding affordable, secure housing for residents on low and moderate incomes is particularly tough. I’m proud to support the Red Door Society in delivering sorely needed affordable housing for some of our most vulnerable residents – low income seniors and families – close to transit and community amenities in the heart of Mount Pleasant.”
