  • Solving The Housing Crisis at SFU: Part 2 - Spacing Vancouver
    entirely to the hands of the Federal Government chances are that we will build another Pruitt Igoe or Regent Park There was optimism however that we have learned from our mistakes and can use this knowledge to improve people s housing situation and redefine affordable housing This highlights the importance and belief in mixed income housing models and neighbourhoods to prevent the creation of ghettos segregation and decay Municipalities and non profits should be empowered to have the freedom to build and run these affordable housing projects with the funding being provided by the Federal Government The need for more supply of affordable rental housing was another important issue raised Even though nearly 70 per cent of Canadians are homeowners affordability also affects renters According to the presentations shown 45 per cent of renters in British Columbia spend more than 30 per cent which is the official threshold for affordable in housing while another 24 per cent spend up to half of their income on rent According to these statistics almost 70 per cent of rental households in BC spend a significant number of their income on rent Particularly the Millennials but also Generation Xers who are more likely to rent than own a home The demographic shift also points to different preferences in housing as not all Millennials want to own a house Therefore alternative ways of housing e g housing cooperatives need to be explored Both the Tuesday workshop as well as Monday s storytelling event demonstrated that there is no cookie cutter solution on how to solve Canada s national crisis of affordable housing given how complex and multifaceted its causes are At the end of the day it will be a difficult journey requiring sincere engagement and creativity to find innovative solutions to the issues However

  • Stadium Dreams at Shannon Park - Spacing Atlantic
    t needed to redevelop the site Saputo Stadium in Montreal Completely empty when there are no events and beginning to fill up on game day Photos Jeff Kern and West End The Park and Ride Mirage Proponents of a Shannon Park stadium have often identified the potential for a new ferry route that could use the stadium s parking lot as a park and ride facility during the work day This argument has the question backwards Rather than asking what can be done with the stadium s large parking lot what should be asked is where the best place for park and ride ferry services are The answer is Woodside and Bedford The Woodside ferry already has a very successful park and ride and compared to Shannon Park Woodside is closer to Dartmouth s growing Eastern suburbs Woodside is also far better located to divert traffic away from the busy MacDonald and MacKay Bridges For commuters travelling from Sackville or Bedford Shannon Park is also not the best location because they would still have to navigate the traffic bottlenecks of Magazine Hill and Windmill Road It makes much more sense to divert Bedford and Sackville commuters before these choke points with a Bedford fast ferry A ferry could still be desirable in Shannon Park but Shannon Park is better setup to serve a local transportation role in North Dartmouth rather than a regional park and ride system Existing and potential ferry terminals yellow and major sources of incoming commuters in Dartmouth red arrows Photo Google A Parking Garage The biggest problem with putting a stadium at Shannon Park is that it would overwhelm the site largely due to its parking requirement Could a parking garage meet a stadium s needs and free up additional land Yes Parking garages take up less space but they are also unfortunately very expensive Using the recently built garage at the Halifax airport as a template reveals that building a 3 075 space 5 level garage at Shannon Park would require five acres of land Compared to the surface parking scenario this make a substantial 25 acres available for other uses Unfortunately a rough estimate based on square footage numbers from Altus indicates a ballpark cost of 84 98 million for what would be a very large parkade This would be on top of the cost of building the actual stadium easily making the overall stadium project a 200 million or more endeavor Build a very expensive garage at Shannon Park that would be relatively empty most of the time or dedicate 1 3 of the site to surface parking Neither option is very attractive Alternative Transportation There is one recently built stadium in Canada that has little parking Ottawa s Lansdowne Park The redeveloped stadium at Lansdowne has 24 000 seats but just 1 200 parking spaces for an incredibly progressive 20 1 ratio The average for the other new stadiums was 6 5 1 Ottawa relies on people walking cycling or taking transit
