Building Bold - Submission #57
Downtown Vancouver’s glass condo towers and private podium amenities are home to upwardly mobile professionals and foreign capital. This developer friendly model is often held as a symbol of Vancouver’s economic success. It is a success that isn’t shared by all however, low income singles and young couples are priced out of the cities housing market. VibRENTcity aspires to re-define how we think about traditional podium tower housing, questioning preconceptions about everything from finance to public space and places an importance on securing affordable, purpose built market rental housing while creating vibrant neighbourhoods and improving city connections.
