Rental Housing Study
Vancouver, BC

We completed detailed market and financial analysis of Vancouver’s purpose-built rental housing stock, as inputs to a major rental housing strategy.  Our work included analysis of the inventory in terms of risk of redevelopment based on market demand and financial performance of retaining existing units versus demolition for market condominium. Our work also included an analysis of policy and regulatory mechanisms to improve the financial performance of new rental housing relative to new condominium development, to help the City identify actions that would lead to new rental construction.
