Costly social housing: monthly rents up to $4,700 per unit at new Vancouver development

Sixty percent of the social housing units at the proposed 950 West 41st Avenue development, as shown in this Acton Ostry Architects rendering, will charge full market rental rates.

Under the administration of the ruling Vision Vancouver party, the City of Vancouver has changed the definition of social housing.

Social housing used to mean affordable housing as a whole. Now it’s an entire development where up to 70 percent of units can be rented at market rates.
