Low-income Modular Units Rising in Vancouver

Straightonline from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada tells us the city council is set to vote on a set of two modular three-story housing complexes totalling 12 units, half of which will be for marginalized young women and the other half for older women who it is hoped can mentor the younger women in an inter-generational setting. The dwellings are being re-constructed from shipping containers at a cost of $92,000, and if approved, will be habitable by summer. Mayor Gregor Robertson of Vancouver says, “This is the kind of creative housing partnership we need in Vancouver, and I’m hopeful that City Council will unanimously support it next week.”
