M’akola Housing Society
DESIGN / CONSTRUCTION
2016 – Ongoing
M’akola Housing Society (MHS), in partnership with the City of Courtenay, the Wachiay Friendship Centre and the support of the Comox Valley Regional District is developing a 35-unit affordable housing complex for low-income singles and those at risk of homelessness, with a focus on Indigenous peoples, in Courtenay, BC.
The high need for adequate and suitable housing in the Comox Valley, as well as MHS’ 19 years of experience operating in the region, has garnered the project a high level of support from the community-at-large and has become a strategic priority for the City of Courtenay.
The M’akola Development Services team was responsible for the feasibility analysis, municipal planning processes, coordination of design development, site planning and project management through construction. In addition, the team fostered and facilitated partnerships between numerous organizations and recognize the traditional territory of the K’ómoks First Nation. Construction is scheduled to complete in early 2019.
