Temporary Housing Planned for Downtown Eastside Industrial Site

A light industrial property in the Downtown  Eastside of Vancouver is being considered for a temporary modular housing site


The plan is to provide housing at 323 Alexander Street for the city's homeless. But first the city has to apply to modity the Regional Official Development Plan to allow residential use.

The city requires an amendment that would temporarily change the designation of the site from Industrial to General Urban, while the property is occupied with Temporary Modular Housing.

Hopefully this approval will be passed sometime this year. 

Temporary modular homes are located on vacant and underused sites across the city and are typically on site for a period up to 10 years.

The 323 Alexander Street property assessed value fell from $24,708,00 to 17,841,000.
