Working with its many partners, Kiwanis is well under construction on its new Lynn Woods affordable housing project in Lynn Valley. The new six-storey building, located at 2555 Whiteley Court, will provide 106 one-bedroom units for low to middle income older adults. The adjacent Lynn Manor rental building has been owned and operated by Kiwanis since 1974. Kiwanis is just completing a major renovation of Lynn Manor.
“Our objective is to create a shared sense of community for approximately 320 residents who will live here when construction is complete,” said President Patrick McLaughlin.
Kiwanis wants to recognize the Province of British Columbia / BC Housing for a $10.6 million contribution, as well as the District of North Vancouver for approval of the development and the waiving of $2.8 million in potential development costs and levies. District Council approved the project and issued a development permit in September 2018. At a cost of approximately $37.4 million, Lynn Woods is expected to be complete in 2022.
We are proud to have the following firms leading our construction effort:
Vanmar Constructors, RLA architects and Innovative Housing Consultants, as well as many very competent sub-contractors and consultants.
