The Alexander Street Community — Alexander St and Princess Ave.
The project at 111 Princess Avenue is a 139-unit, mid-rise multi-unit residential located in Vancouver, BC. This supportive housing facility is run by the Portland Hotel Society (PHS) Community Services Society, who provides community residents of inner city neighbourhoods with programs, support and housing to help stabilize their lives.
The Alexander Street Community provides 100 units of low-barrier permanent housing and 39 units of clinically supported transitional housing for individuals living with physical and mental health issues, substance dependencies and a gamut of other challenges – often concurrently.
The Alexander Street Community is a purpose-built LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) building that has been operated by PHS since opening recently; it is also one of 14 recently-opened sites facilitated by land donations from the City of Vancouver.
