A crane is moving large module buildings along 1st avenue in Prince George to help construct 50 new homes for the homeless community.
These pre-built units are fully furnished and just need electrical and plumbing connections to be ready for occupancy.
This is part of the collaboration between BC Housing, the City of Prince George, Northern Health, Indigenous housing organizations, non-profit housing operators, and other partners to create 162 new supportive homes:
- 1201 1st Ave., 27 units under renovation at the former National Hotel
- 1919 17th Ave., 35 units
- 805 1st Ave., 100 units with integrated health services at the former NR Motors location
The construction project began in the Spring of 2021, and the housing will include 24/7 support services like meal programs, life and employment skills training, and health and wellness supports.
Northern Health will be in charge of overseeing these spaces, and the initial 50 homes are slated to be completed early next year.
