Aboriginal Land Trust tower showcases Indigenous artwork on façade

Urban Arts Architecture has designed a 14-storey social housing and services building for the corner of East Hastings and Jackson Street in the Downtown Eastside.

The development is for the Aboriginal Land Trust and will include a social service centre and ground floor retail space.

There will be 172 units of social housing, including studios, one-bedroom, “loft city homes” and two-bedroom units, and several levels of affordability, with units renting at “core” rates, as well as BC Housing HIL rates, and middle-income rates.

  • Core Units – 56 Units, 33%
  • HILS Units, housing income limit rates, up to $67,500 for a two-bedroom: 39 Units, 23%
  • MILS Units, middle-income, up to $155,510 for a two-bedroom: 77 Units, 45%

There will be 21 underground parking stalls, and 237 bicycle parking stalls. The tower exterior will feature Indigenous artwork, and colourful balcony glazing that will alternate on each level.

The site is currently a vacant lot.
