Vibrant Neighbourhoods - Submission #59
This project proposes using Vancouver’s existing, unkept built stock as the basis for reinvention and regeneration of affordable housing in Vancouver. Rather than developing affordable housing in far away neighbourhoods, “Enhancing the Pie” suggests one solution for affordable housing and vibrant neighbourhoods lies within historic areas in the downtown core.
Regenerating existing stock is not a new idea. What this project proposes, however, is searching for new financial, environmental, and programmatic synergies that are site and context-sepcific.
