Modular Container Housing to House At Risk Women and Families in Vancouver

Vancouver__modular__atira_womens_resource_center_credit__imageMHProNews has learned the seven story modular housing complex made from old shipping containers rising in downtown Vancouver, British Columbia is headed up by the non-profit Atira Women’s Resource Center, which already has a 12 unit modular building providing housing for women in town. This 21-unit housing project is for women and their families, according to cbc.ca.

Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson said, “We know the housing market is very difficult for people on low and fixed incomes and we urgently need creative projects built at low cost.”

The building will include seven micro units and 14 two-bedroom units with community space and retail on the ground floor, as requested by the Strathcona Residents Association. The Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation is contributing $600,000 to the project. Other community groups involved in the project include Vancouver Aboriginal Child and Family Services, Sheway, and Watar.

MHProNews reported May 13, 2016 another project involving affordable modular housing in Vancouver is divided into two separate sites. One on High St. will have 40-80 micro units, each with its own kitchen and bath. The other modular complex will have 40 units but with a shared kitchen. ##
