A proposed East Vancouver housing community aims to advance innovative solutions to affordability, climate change, and social equity.
Vienna House is a partnership between BC Housing, the City of Vancouver through the Vancouver Affordable Housing Agency, and the More Than a Roof Housing Society. Each will bring its own expertise, experience, and resources to the project.
As proposed, Vienna House would be a six storey, 101-unit dedicated rental housing community close to Trout Lake in Vancouver’s Kensington – Cedar Cottage neighbourhood.
