This development supports Indigenous families who are in need of affordable housing.
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).
MHS has completed construction of Phase 1 of this new development. It is a six-storey apartment building with ground level offices and 60 units of affordable housing.
They are currently in construction of Phase 2, which will further utilize the rest of the property, adding low to moderate income family homes to the rear of the site. Phase 2 will include the construction of a six-storey concrete main floor, wood frame building with 40 units of one-, two-, and three-bedroom layouts. This project is expected to complete by the end of 2021.
The M’akola Development Services team is responsible for the feasibility analysis, business case development, and site planning.
