Groundbreaking Ceremony for The Link

This exciting project, located at 3593 Kingsway, is now underway.  It is a partnership between Odd Fellows Low Rental Housing Society, Terra Special Projects, GBL Architects, the City of Vancouver and Hungerford Properties and will replace the aging Odd Fellows Manor which was previously on the site.

Terra has been working with the Society since 2011 to determine the feasibility of the redevelopment and to formulate a business plan, including helping the Society partner with the right team for the project.  The rezoning application received unanimous support from Vancouver City Council at a public hearing in October 2016.

Hungerford partner, Michael Hungerford addressed the guests at the official groundbreaking ceremony, saying he was "proud of the association with Terra, Odd Fellows and GBL".  Michael lauded the excellent central location of the project with its proximity to transit and said the project was "a link between great partners" and "a link with the City" (hence the project name).

Alex Fane, Vice President of Odd Fellows Low Rental Housing Society spoke to "thank those that got us here".  He thanked Terra and Hungerford, "really knowledgeable and really well respected" organizations - "partners you can trust and rely on".  He celebrated the project as a "unique way of doing things" and looked forward to welcoming residents in the late summer of 2019.
