ULI BC TAP: HFBC
ULI BC is pleased to announce we are planning our next and fifth Technical Assistance Panel (TAP) with Housing Foundation of British Columbia (HFBC) – providing housing with a focus on persons with low income. HFBC’s main focus is on supporting the housing needs of low income seniors who are able to live independently.
Statement of the Challenge: Incorporated in 1952 under the Societies Act of BC, the Housing Foundation of BC (HFBC) is a private-sector non-profit organization that builds and operates affordable housing for seniors, persons with disabilities, and families. HFBC currently manages 945 units in Metro Vancouver with a vision that people of all income levels have a home within a vibrant and healthy community.
HFBC is asking ULI BC to undertake a TAP focused on a property called Collingwood Tower; a 40 year old 10-storey high rise that contains 66 studios and 12 1-bedroom units and is located at 5657 Harold Street in Vancouver. HFBC is seeking creative solutions for redevelopment options to increase the net unit count and explore efficient, effective delivery mechanisms that are aligned with their vision.
