A rezoning application has been submitted by BC Housing to the City of Vancouver to build approximately 64 new homes, with supports, for people experiencing or at risk of homelessness in Vancouver at 2518-2538 South Grandview Highway.

As part of the rezoning process, the City will be hosting a virtual open house where residents can review the plans and provide feedback on the rezoning application.

The open house will take place from May 16 to June 5 at shapeyourcity.ca/2518-2540-grandview-hwy-s.

All comments and feedback related to the rezoning application should be submitted through the City of Vancouver to be considered.

As this housing proposal proceeds through the development process, any changes and adjustments will be reflected in the documents related to the current stage of development. The information below is related to the early engagement process. To view the current housing proposal, please visit: Shape Your City.

New warm, safe homes with supports on South Grandview Highway at Copley Street

Vancouver is in a housing crisis and more than 2,000 people across the city of Vancouver are experiencing homelessness.

Creating warm, safe homes with supports for people who are at risk of, or are experiencing homelessness, in our communities continues to be a top priority for BC Housing and the City of Vancouver.

BC Housing and the City of Vancouver are proposing to build a six-storey residential building with approximately 64 new homes with supports at 2518-2538 South Grandview Highway. The homes would be for adults, seniors, and people with disabilities who are experiencing, or are at risk of, homelessness with a priority for people in the local community.

  • All units would be studio apartments with a private bathroom and kitchen
  • At least 5% of the homes would be fully accessible, with all homes designed to be universally adaptable to residents of all abilities
  • The building would also include amenities such as shared laundry, a dining area, program space, and surface car parking

Moving forward at South Grandview Highway and Copley Street

Through the City of Vancouver’s development process, we invite community feedback on aspects of the development proposal, including:

  • All building and site design elements, such as lighting and landscaping
  • Local representation for the Community Advisory Committee (CAC)
  • Ideas for how to support the success of the building

As with any other development in Vancouver, information about a building’s future residents such as their race, gender, level of income, private healthcare needs, or sexual orientation does not factor into City Council’s decision to approve a site.

Professional non-profit housing operator

If approved, this building would be managed by Community Builders, an established non-profit housing provider that supports people in more than 700 homes in Vancouver.

Community Builders has been managing supportive housing buildings in Vancouver and surrounding areas since 2001. Community Builders helps residents achieve and maintain stability in housing and enhance access to other community-based supports and services to foster resilience against homelessness in an atmosphere of empathy, compassion, and respect.

Guidelines for respectful dialogue

We want to hear from everyone who wants to share their perspective in a safe and respectful way.

  • All conversations - in-person, over the phone, and/or online - are meant to be a place where people can share and listen.
  • BC Housing is committed to responding as best we can, with the relevant information we have, in a timely manner.
  • In order to respond to as many inquiries as possible, we have to deploy our resources equitably. No one person or group can or should expect to monopolize the time and efforts of the project team.
  • We expect everyone will refrain from using language or acting in a way that is discriminating, threatening, abusive, racist, or otherwise disrespectful. Discrimination or abusive language of any kind will not be tolerated.
