About 346 East 6th Avenue

In partnership with BC Housing and Wall Financial Corporation (WFC), Brightside is pursuing an opportunity to develop 349 East 6th Avenue, adjacent to our Mount Pleasant Lions Manor building at 325 East 6th Avenue.  

The proposed building at 349 East 6th Avenue would replace Brightside’s current building, Mount Pleasant Lions Manor, located at 325 East 6th Avenue. The proposal is to replace the existing 36 units at 325 East 6th Avenue with 82 new units of affordable, secured rental housing for independent-living seniors, families, and people with disabilities at 349 East 6th Avenue.  

Because the new building is proposed for the site adjacent to the existing Brightside building, current residents at 325 East 6th Avenue will not need to temporarily relocate during the construction process, thereby minimizing disruption to current residents. All residents will have the opportunity to move into the new building once it is complete at the same rental rates based on income.
