New Homes On The Way For Arts, Culture Professionals In New Westminster

Darpan News Desk , 08 Nov, 2019
  • New Homes On The Way For Arts, Culture Professionals In New Westminster

People who are working in or retired from B.C.’s performing arts and entertainment industry will soon have access to 66 affordable rental homes, so they can continue to live in their community.

 

Located at 831 Carnarvon St., the new development is under construction as part of a partnership between the Province, PAL Vancouver and Vintop Development Corporation.


“This unique project will give people in our community the peace of mind that comes with safe and secure housing — something that every British Columbian deserves,” said Judy Darcy, MLA for New Westminster. “It is a great example of how working with community partners, we can build affordable homes for people from all walks of life across B.C.”


The Province is providing $7.4 million to help build the eight-storey building, which will provide 25 studios and 41 one-bedroom units for those from arts-oriented professions with low to moderate incomes. Priority will be given to seniors and people with disabilities.


PAL Vancouver will be the operator. The non-profit organization was established in 2001 to provide long-standing members of performing arts professions with affordable housing in a vibrant community.


Vintop Development Corporation is contributing $2 million to the project.


Delivering affordable housing is a shared priority between government and the BC Green Party caucus and is part of the Confidence and Supply Agreement.
