Brightside Community Homes Foundation worked in partnership with BC Housing and Wall Financial Corporation to develop 349 East 6th Avenue, adjacent to Brightside’s existing Mount Pleasant Lions Manor building at 325 East 6th Avenue.
The new building at 349 East 6th Avenue replaces Brightside’s current building, Mount Pleasant Lions Manor, located at 325 East 6th Avenue. This beautiful new building replaces an existing 36 units at 325 East 6th Avenue and adds new homes for a total of 82 new affordable, secured rental housing for independent-living seniors, families, and people with disabilities at 349 East 6th Avenue.
Because the new building is directly adjacent to the existing Brightside building, no relocation was required for current residents at 325 East 6th Avenue during the construction process, thereby minimizing disruption to current residents. All residents have been presented with the opportunity to move into the new building once it is complete at the same rental rates based on income.
