  • Looking at Housing + Sharing - Spacing Vancouver
    developed with Lando s new family in mind making them trailblazers in an alternative form of Vancouver housing ownership As prices rise to unattainable values for most Vancouverites the potential to build equity in a home doesn t have to be a pipe dream and this model provides an alternative option in a daunting market According to Lando the most difficult part of the process was coming to consensus about how they would adapt their living styles manage the potential for financial hardship and what responsibilities would be expected of each family In the end the situation was successful and she highly suggests this method of ownership for those interested in shared innovative models of financing Connected to the previous discussion on cooperative housing models Tim Tewsley passionately described his experience living in the Waterfront Consumer s Cooperative WCC founded in 1972 The WCC is one of Vancouver s oldest cooperative housing groups and shares a common goal of generosity and community The WCC housing arrangement requires all members to split house chores meals and maintenance under the guidance of a board with two member representation from each member house in the co op The premise of the cooperative is to provide an excellent quality of life through shared living experience but also at a lower cost than conventional housing arrangements With a background in sustainability management carbon accounting and LEED Tim respects the importance of shared environmental responsibility This shared responsibility links directly into living in housing that enhances the ideology of sustainability cooperation and community Each person living in the WCC pays into a combined mortgage where all members pay an equal monthly amount with subsidies for children and seniors over 65 The mortgages are long term and low cost including a dissolution clause which means the members will not profit if the co op ever sells its assets giving the profits to a similar organization Tim described living in the WCC as supportive healthy prosperous and fun These are some of the reasons why so many people are currently leaning towards collective based living instead of the more individualistic Western forms of housing that have been the norm for the better part of fifty years Aside from housing cooperatives other models of home ownership and living arrangements exist that are considered collaborative and progressive Britta Jongkind a former resident of the Yarrow Eco Village in Chilliwack and the Windsong Cohousing Community in Langley discussed one of these alternative models cohousing The premise of cohousing is more contemporary strata model but differs in that residents also share a main common area or building that may house a kitchen common dining room activity rooms for children and teens offices gardens and a multitude of other activities The units would be sold at a little below market rates but it s the inclusivity of the developments that make them much more valuable to the community s residents Continuing the cohousing discussion was Emmanuel Lavoie of BlueGreen Living Communities BGLC He
