Our Development Permit application has received conditional approval from the Director of Planning at the City of Vancouver. We are currently preparing a Building Permit application for Spring 2024.
About The Project
The Association of Neighbourhood Houses BC is undertaking the redevelopment of Cedar Cottage Neighbourhood House. The original house was constructed in 1964. The new house will have improved facilities allowing for the continuation of important community programs. Its estimated completion is 2026.
Improved and expanded spaces for our Adult Day Program
Facility with 37 spaces for our Childcare Programs
Community living room and kitchen
Family meeting and activity rooms
Multipurpose and cultural wellness spaces
Outdoor gathering spaces
The project design and processes are being developed in relation to our project principles established through stakeholder engagement sessions.
The new facility will be constructed to approximately 19,000 square feet with a hybrid concrete-mass timber structure. The building will be energy-efficient, use no natural gas, and will consist of a wide variety of purpose-built spaces serving community-building activities that support a strong and vibrant local community where all people can connect, belong, and thrive.
All the programming areas will embed prevention services and activities that build capacity, address isolation and vulnerabilities, improve food security, and contribute to the healthy lifelong development of community members.
Accessible for all ages and abilities
EV charging and e-bike charging
