82-units of affordable and supportive housing proposed for Gorge Road
Published November 2, 2017
The Victoria Cool Aid Society has submitted a development proposal to the City of Victoria to build an 82-unit affordable housing project on Gorge Road East at Carroll Street in Victoria's Burnside-Gorge neighbourhood.
Dubbed 210 Gorge Road East
, the six-storey complex will feature 50-units of below-market affordable rental apartments and 32-units of self-contained supportive housing rental units for adults requiring Cool Aid's on-site support services.
The project’s target residents include working singles, low-income couples, seniors and adults in need of supportive housing options.
Homes will range from 318 square foot studios to 718 square foot two-bedroom suites. 24 parking spaces will be situated along the ground floor with four stalls available to visitors.
The building will replace Cool Aid’s Cedar Grove Motel apartments situated within two aging former motel structure on the property. Converted several years ago to 21 supportive housing units, the Cedar Grove complex has reached the end of its functional life and is in need of replacement.
Pending municipal approvals anticipated to be secured by early next year, construction on the new building could begin by mid-to-late 2018. C
