BC Housing is to lead the construction over two phases of a building containing 50 units of supportive housing and one holding 50 units of rental homes for low-income people. Rents will work out to 30 per cent of the tenant's gross household income.

Each building would include ground-floor healthcare space that would deliver services for both residents and the public.

The city will purchase the land for a price to be made public once the transaction is completed.

More information on the project is available online at
