Vancouver has a problem with affordable housing.
No matter where you place the blame: speculators, easy credit, housing bubble, foreign buyers – the problem remains.
As a first time buyer how do you get into the market?
How about one cubic foot at a time?
It can be tough to afford a 580 sq ft one bedroom apartment for $415,000 but anyone can find an extra $199 to get that first cubic foot and get in now!
It’s Real Estate 3.0!
This was posted as a submission to the reTHINK housing competition from the City of Vancouver and already the rave reviews are pouring in:
Doug Farmer says:
4 stars – Very outside the box thinking about something inside the box. Has 21st century written all over it.
Our friend YVR Housing Analyst says
A thoughtful submission. I like how they can stack; I, for one, would first have tried spheres.
And Flo says
This is the least creative solution I have seen submitted. I feel hopeless about my future just looking at this.
I agree with arch. This is not the kind of architectural experience that sustains a human soul.
So don’t miss out on your opportunity. Get your single square foot in the market today!
