DESIGN / CONSTRUCTION
2016 – Ongoing
M’akola Development Services (MDS) is working as a development consultant for M’akola Housing Society (MHS) for the design and construction of the mixed use, commercial and residential Station Avenue project in Langford, BC.
MHS has proposed the 731 Station Avenue project, a two-phase affordable housing project in downtown Langford to support urban Indigenous families, Elders/seniors and singles in need of stable, affordable and high-quality housing in the Westshore. This project is funded by BC Housing’s (BCH) Provincial Investment in Affordable Housing: Aboriginal Housing Initiative (PIAH).
Phase 1 of the Station Avenue Project includes the construction of a six-storey mixed use wood frame building consisting of 60 units of self-contained rental units in studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom layouts. Approximately, 6,500 sq. ft. of commercial space will be owned and operated by Hulitan Family and Community Services Society (HFCSS). HFCSS provides social and emotional support through programs and services to Indigenous children, Indigenous youth, and Indigenous families. Approximately, 4,000 sq. ft. of commercial space on the ground floor will be used as MDS office space. Phase 1 of the project has commenced and is currently under construction.
Phase 2 is proposed and would include the construction of a six-storey development with 40 units of affordable housing in a second building at the rear of the site. This project is currently being considered for funding.
The M’akola Development Services team is responsible for the feasibility analysis, business case development, site planning, and project management through construction.
