The Rotary Club had operated housing for low-income seniors in Kelowna since 1957. The club could no longer operate the site, which needed major repairs, so Pleasantvale Homes Society took it over. To access funds for redevelopment, the society sold the land to BC Housing, which also acquired adjoining City-owned land. The redeveloped site has units for low-income seniors in a four-storey building and townhouses for low- and moderate-income families.
About the redevelopment case study series
This case study series highlights examples of how BC Housing has worked with non-profit providers to facilitate redevelopment of affordable housing sites, as well as captures some of the lessons learned from those experiences. These case studies can spark ideas for non-profit housing providers in B.C. and across Canada that may be considering redevelopment of their sites.
