The Sunshine Coast Lions Housing Society is hoping the District of Sechelt gives the final green light this week for an affordable housing project.

That’s after the province announced it would fund the new 104 unit 5-story building on Medusa Street to the tune of 10 point 4 million dollars

President Robert Allen says the tender process will consider two different types of build.

Modular which will likely be built elsewhere and then set into place like the cold weather shelter was and, a traditional stick-build.

Allen says the new building will feature 4-two bedroom suites, something that’s not offered in the Greenecourt complex at this time.

He says there are 255 people on the waiting list for a suite in the complex.

Construction is scheduled to begin in summer 2019.
