736 Princess Avenue is back before municipal planners as a mixed-use retail, office and transitional housing project catering to the society’s operations with a street level café on the ground floor, space for employment and education programs on level two, and office space on the third floor along with support services for clients. Levels four-through-six will be comprised of nearly 30 furnished micro suites sized at approximately 300 square feet.

Manak said extra challenges of policing in Victoria include a high concentration of liquor seats in clubs and bars, as well as three halfway houses for released prisoners.
"The challenge that we see in Victoria many times is … the number of high-risk offenders that are in our communities that have to be managed and that we have to oversee," he said.
He said the halfway houses aren't to blame for the high crime rate but do require significant police resources for curfew checks and making sure that people are following their conditions of release.
