Overview

Novak (CEO of the Three Links Care Society) said the Odd Fellows Low Rental Housing Society teamed up with Hungerford Properties for a plan to redevelop the property into a six-storey building.

The new building will have replacements for the 44 nonmarket housing units (29 studios, 15 one-bedrooms) at the existing Odd Fellows Manor, 117 new units of market rentals, and commercial space at ground level. “Hungerford is covering the total cost,” Novak said.

According to him, the Odd Fellows group will own the 44 nonmarket units and Hungerford will have the 117 market-rental homes through a strata arrangement. The partners have filed a rezoning application with the city.

Project Name: First Baptist Church Development
Location: Vancouver, BC
Client: First Baptist Church
Description: 66 Units Affordable Housing, Heritage Seismic Upgrade, Market Condos

Overview

The City of Vancouver has approved the proposal for redevelopment of 969 Burrard Street and 1019 – 1045 Nelson Street, sites owned by First Baptist Church – enabling the city’s oldest Baptist congregation to remain at the heart of Vancouver. The redevelopment of the 107-year old First Baptist Church is one of the most anticipated projects in the city. Comprised of the church and its four lots on Nelson Street, the large scale redevelopment of the site at Burrard and Nelson, will now move forward.

As the landowner, First Baptist chose Westbank as its development partner in 2013, and together they engaged renowned local architecture firm Bing Thom Architects to design the redevelopment. The progressive venture will bring greatly expanded services to the congregation and broader community – including below-market rental housing, new childcare facilities, and expansion of existing programs for seniors, youth, new immigrants, and the homeless shelter that the church has run for almost two decades.
