The Ryder Affordable Housing, Hope, British Columbia

Background

Like many areas of North America, the supply of affordable rental housing in Hope, BC was being challenged by escalating prices and the inability of new construction to meet demand. In fact, CMHC had registered a 0% vacancy rate in the town. Anhart, a network of organizations working primarily in Canada to provide affordable housing solutions, saw an opportunity to provide affordable spaces to those living and working in Hope.

Challenge

As the need for affordable housing increases, the best way to meet demand is through rapid construction. With public funding central to many affordable housing projects, certainty of schedule and budget along with sustainability and accessibility are critical factors for developers like Anhart.
