3598 Copley Street
- Former address: 2303-2355 Vanness Ave
Temporary modular housing is under development at 3598 Copley St. The site will have one three-storey building containing 58 studio homes, primarily for single adults.
All units will be self-contained dwellings with a private bathroom and kitchen. Six units will be wheelchair accessible.
This will be a supportive housing building. BC Housing has selected Community Builders Group as the non-profit housing operator.
The new building will be named Naomi Place after Naomi Seller, a long-term resident and peer advisor to the Community Builders board and staff who tirelessly gave insight and advice to their team during her 17 years living in Community Builders housing sites.
Sadly, Naomi passed away in 2018 due to an overdose, despite her work with overdose awareness and harm reduction safety strategies. She was an integral member of the Community Builders family and to name a housing site in honor of her memory enables her brave, determined spirit to live on.
Naomi’s passion and inspiration will help shape the type of home Community Builders will foster for its residents.
