Hemlock Place is a proposal to build 10 to 12 affordable townhouse units at 609 Second Avenue in Queen Charlotte. This property is currently owned by Makola Housing Development Society
and is occupied by a derelict duplex, an older mobile home and an abandoned vehicle. This project is a partnership between the Makola Societies and the Queen Charlotte Heritage Housing Society (QCHHS), who have been developing the proposal since January, 2020.
The legal and topographical surveys were completed in August, and we are proceeding with the consolidation and rezoning plans for the 4 lots. We are working with planners to determine how many units of what size can fit on the property, while observing the municipal setbacks from the property lines.
We are planning to submit the final funding proposal to BC Housing’s “Community Housing Fund” for the next intake in early January, 2021. We are grateful for the support that we have received from the Village of Queen Charlotte.
