Marguerite Ford Apartments

Sanford Housing Society
215 West 2nd Ave., Vancouver
New Construction

Terra provided development management services to Sanford Housing Society to complete Marguerite Ford Apartments.  The project was funded under the Provincial Homelessness Initiative (PHI) program which provides a continuum of housing and appropriate social and health support services to help people break the cycle of homelessness.  It contributes positively to the diversity of the surrounding new and growing South East False Creek neighbourhood.

The project provides 147 units of housing to help people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness move beyond temporary shelter to more secure housing, gain greater self-reliance and achieve appropriate employment.  Support services for the project are provided by RainCity Housing and Support Society.

The L-shaped design of building encloses a landscaped courtyard adjacent to the lane which serves as an outdoor residential amenity space and a portion of the building features a rooftop deck.  The project achieved LEED Gold certification in December 2014.
