The housing issue in Vancouver is hard to ignore, with the latest Occupy movement drawing even more attention to it. With rising rental prices and rental housing shortages, it comes as no suprise that Vancouverites feel driven away from living in their own city.
One developer, Reliance Properties, is determined to change this by introducing the first innovative ”Micro-lofts”. This is the smallest unit design ever passed through Council, being only 270 square feet in size. They will be built in Downtown Eastside, bringing people back into the heart of the city.
These units provide a fold-down bed, a fold-away table, a galley kitchen and a small area dedicated for the shower, sink and toilet. What makes this design remarkable is that these suites are not only affordable, with rent starting from $650 per month, or the fact that it is designed to allow a couple to live in comfortably, but it is also beautiful.
VictorEric believes that any space, no matter how small, can be made beautiful and livable. VictorEric is a true Vancouverite, supporting innovative solutions to the housing issues in our beloved city.
