The 127 Housing Society has been selected as sponsors for development of its fourth housing project in downtown
Hilda Gregory of Christ Church Cathedral, chair of the society, says the building is to be carbon-neutral with energy sources that will be primarily geothermal and solar. She reports that an add-on could even be a windmill to harness the wind flow along False Creek.
The 127 Housing Society was formed in the 1980s by a group at the Cathedral. It now provides affordable housing for 270 low-income residents. It is supported in part by the Going the Extra Mile ("G.E.M."), the diocese's voluntary giving program.
