Construction Starting For The Hub Redevelopment

September 26, 2023   
Starting this week, The Hub: North Shore Neighbourhood House Redevelopment will begin Phase 1 construction, a historic step in the development of this vibrant community project that integrates below-market rental housing with essential community services, including a new North Shore Neighbourhood House. 

The City’s partner and developer of Phase 1, Catalyst Community Development Society, will begin work with site preparations, which includes removing several trees and vegetation, installing construction fencing and site signage. This will be followed by site excavations and construction of the new building. Construction is anticipated to be complete summer 2025.


About The Hub: North Shore Neighbourhood House Redevelopment

The Hub is a multi-partner redevelopment on City-owned land that supports the City’s ongoing commitment to increasing rental housing and community-based services. 

Over the next ten years, The Hub redevelopment will provide approximately 250 below-market rental units, a new and expanded North Shore Neighbourhood House, a respite centre with 18 overnight beds and 25 adult daycare spaces and an updated community park. The Hub is being built in three phases to ensure the continued operation of the North Shore Neighbourhood House throughout construction.

Phase 1 of The Hub project is the construction of a new six-storey building with 89 below-market rental units that Catalyst will operate and a respite centre that The Health and Home Care Society of BC (CareBC) will manage. 

As part of re-imagining this site, the City held a series of engagement initiatives in 2021. The public and others provided essential input to help the City make the best decisions and plans for this important project.
