number TEN is currently working on a new four storey development with 58 units of affordable housing for the Gorge View Housing Society. The project is targeting resident population of both seniors and young families. Two and three bedroom garden units on the main floor are aimed at families and one bedroom units on the 2nd through 4th floors are being developed for seniors.
The building will be situated within an established non profit housing development with 15 existing buildings and 108 housing units. The design of the new building incorporates a new lounge amenity space, a roof terrace, an outdoor play and activity space for children, and extensive use of the landscaping as garden plots for both the new and existing residents of the site. The project has incorporated a number of features to increase energy efficiency and is targeting Step 4 of the BC Energy Step Code.
The project is currently in Construction Documents following a successful development permit with variances approval by the City of Victoria. Kinetic Construction is the Construction Manager.
