New warm, safe homes with supports on Southeast Marine Drive at Beatrice 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 72 new homes with supports at 1925 Southeast Marine Drive. 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 a parkade

Moving forward at Southeast Marine Drive and Beatrice Street

BC Housing and the City are committed to moving forward with a rezoning application to develop this specific site are sharing information on this proposal with neighbours early in the development process.

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
  • 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 The Kettle Society, an established non‑profit housing provider that supports people in more than 400 affordable and supportive homes in Vancouver.

The Kettle Society provides individuals with housing that feels like home. Staff provide residents with the opportunity to improve daily living skills and quality of life, promote personal recovery and become part of a community.

  • BC Housing is committed to responding as best we can, with the relevant information we have, in a timely manner.
