Cordovan – 555 East Cordova Street


This modest Downtown Eastside development application got support from the Urban Design Panel at the end of 2012, sales started at the end of 2013, and now it’s pretty much completed. It’s a small infill project designed by Gair Williamson and developed by Boffo Properties, described in the UDP Agenda as a ‘four-storey residential building with 24 units of achievable home ownership units on the second through fourth floors, 5 units of non-market rental on the ground floor and parking accessed from the lane’.

Boffo partnered with non-profit housing provider, Community Builders Group, who have purchased and will manage the five non-market units. This is the penultimate condo project in this part of the Downtown Eastside (an area known by its zoning, DEOD), as the new DTES Plan changed the requirements to all rental in this area, 40% of which have to be non-market housing.
