Passive House Rental Building Vancouver
Progressive Wood Design and Construction
A green story by Marken Design + Consulting.
Rental Housing for moderate income families
Currently at rezoning stage, the Stainsbury project aims to be an exciting new addition to the East Vancouver neighborhood of the Kensington-Cedar Cottage. The project will replace four post-1940 two-storey houses with five-storey 80 unit rental housing.
The proposed building is intended to be a rental of studios and 1 & 2 bedroom family units. The project team proposes to have 48% of the units devoted to family use and 20% of the building devoted to moderate income tenants encouraging the retention of many of its residents for longer periods of time. The moderate-income component of the building program is significant and is intended to address the City’s increasing demand for affordable housing.
