The Beulah Garden Homes Society is planning an addition of a six-storey, 64-unit seniors living building on its property on Rupert Street, not far from East 1st Avenue in east Vancouver. The architect is Integra Architecture Inc.

Founded as a non-profit in 1951, Beulah Garden Homes Society has been providing affordable housing for seniors for 70 years. There are currently five buildings on the property serving 350 people.

An existing building, constructed in 1964, has reached the end of its useful lifespan. The proposed new building would be located at the southeast corner of the site, away from the existing 1964-built building and upon completion, qualified tenants would be moved into the new building. After the successful relocation of tenants, the existing building would be demolished and replaced by surface parking.

The society says it envisions additional phases of development on the Rupert site in the coming years which will involve additional units of affordable housing and community amenities such as a seniors centre, seniors day services, and indoor/outdoor gathering space. An underground parkade will also be constructed.
