Olympic Village Modular Units Get Second Life

One bedroom modular units are being shipped from the former Olympic athletes’ village in Whistler to provide housing in Saanich, British Columbia for 36 homeless people, 55 and older, called Olympic Vista.  The collaborative effort of several organizations, the units are trucked in and stacked on top of each other, and then given a finished shell covering.  Mayor Frank Leonard said, “It’s been kind of neat how it’s been put together.  It reminds me of LEGO.”  John Crean, manager of housing for the Cool Aid Society, one of the collaborators, said, “This is not a normal project that contractors are familiar with, so they had a lot of challenges at the beginning to work through.  They’re just doing the best they can.”  As reported in SaanichNews.com, these apartments are the initial part of the overall Mount View Campus of Care, which will eventually include a residential care home, independent living suites for seniors, and affordable townhouses for families.  MHMSM.com first reported this story three weeks ago in Olympic Housing Gets New Life.
