New Westminster – RFP Affordable Housing Projects on Two Small City-Owned Sites

July 15, 2015

The City of New Westminster is requesting proposals for innovative affordable ownership or rental housing projects for two city-owned sites. The City is aiming to maximize the use of civic land assets while developing a model for addressing the very pressing issue of housing affordability in Metro Vancouver. This program is an initiative of the Mayor’s Housing Affordability Task Force.

As part of the request, the City of New Westminster is making two municipally-owned sites available (630 Ewen Avenue and 43 Hastings Street) to the successful proponent/s at no charge. The City will also cover related expenses such as development approval costs and building permit fees, legal fees, and site servicing. The City is open to all ideas and is working closely with BC Housing and the Metro Vancouver Housing Corporation both of which will provide advice to the City on this initiative. The deadline for submissions is September 24, 2015 at 3 pm.

The link to the RFP documents is provided below.

For further information, please refer to the instructions contained in the RFP.
