Tenant applications for a 73-unit affordable housing project in Langford are being received and processed in anticipation of move-ins scheduled for November, Citified has learned.
 
The four-storey first phase of the Oak Park development, nearing completion along the 600-block of Goldstream Avenue near Langford’s town centre, is comprised of studio, one, two, three and four-bedroom residences targeted at a wide spectrum of residents in need of affordable housing.
 
Unit leasing is being handled by land owner and local housing provider Pacifica Housing that will own and manage the building upon completion.
 
Constructed by TL Housing Solutions (TLHS) – an affordable housing subsidiary of Vancouver-based developer Townline – Oak Park will undergo final interior work this fall while Pacifica Housing assesses applicants.
 
“Pacifica Housing’s Advisory Association is working with potential tenants to determine eligibility and unit suitability based on an individual’s, a couple’s, or a family’s size, income, and housing needs,” says Lauren Antifeau, Development Manager for Townline in Victoria.  “Individuals wishing to learn more about Oak Park and to submit an application for housing can do so on Pacifica’s website.”
 
Pacifica Housing’s Executive Director and former Mayor of Victoria, Dean Fortin, expressed his excitement over the new affordable rental offerings TLHS has partnered on with Pacifica. [Full article]

Must be nice to be given pretty much free housing!  Is there any reason for people to get off their asses and want to better themselves?

It's not free, the low/entry market is something like $850 for a 1 bedroom. And the subsidized is rent geared to income @30% of gross monthly income. And yes, you have to have income to qualify. The tenants sign leases, pay their own utilities and have to play by the rules like everyone else.

I had a closer look at this complex a couple weeks ago. It looks well made, and I'm glad to see affordable housing move forward.
