In Vancouver, BC., the Central Presbyterian Church partnered with Bosa Properties and Henriquez Partners Architects, to redevelop existing church land into a multi-use, mixed-housing development. The new structure will include a new church, community space, and commercial and retail spaces on the first two floors. The upper floors will include 45 units of non-market rental housing for seniors (to be run by the Central Presbyterian Church’s non-profit housing society) and 168 units of market rental housing. City approval was received in June of 2014 and the project is currently in development. Financing details are not available. The church receives the benefit of updating its worship space as well as opportunities to extend its mission into the larger community. The community receives additional mixed market rental housing and community spaces.
