1249 Howe Street, Vancouver
New Construction

This 12 storey project was completed in June 2013.  Terra worked with the Society to develop this concrete building which contains 100 supportive housing apartments for individuals (as well as 10 units for couples and families) with HIV/AIDS who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.  The building also contains office, programming and community spaces.

The project is targeting LEED Gold certification.

McLaren Housing Society plans to offer workshops and life skills programs to residents, including money management, recreational and social activities and food-related programming such as organized community dinners, cooking skills and food safety.
