Low income @ $850? Not likely.

I like how they say $850 is low income....$1000 is too much.

Ummm, I'd pay $150 more for another 3-400 sq.ft. and a bedroom that doesn't come out of the wall.

$850 a month for someone who makes $10-$12/hour is ridiculous! If they want to provide low income housing it needs to be in the $500/month range. The problem is that these "low-income" rentals that are supposedly built to provide a service for the community are run by for-profit companies! Lets see some units that just take in enough money to be self-sustaining, that will truly be a service to the people who need them.

Fully furnished units are typically more expensive, so factor that in before complaining. You can find 1-bdrm units in the west end for ~$1000/mn yet they are unfurnished.

Still think they are overpriced and cannot believe they rented so easily/quickly.

They got snapped up by hipster baristas. If they're not working at the coffee shop, they're hanging out at the coffee shop. There's no need for a lot of space. That's not cool, you know.

That looks pretty awesome for the size but the price is pretty high. My girlfriend had a place in HK which was like 130 sq ft and she was paying almost 700 CAD a month but that's the ridiculousness of HK.

Because the rent for a parking spot in HK alone might cost more than the price of the rent of an apartment here.

"Each suite comes with basic furnishings, a built-in wall bed, fold-down table and flatscreen TV. Internet and cable-television service are included in the rent, which averages $850 a month."

Without people working those $10-12 jobs, you'll have no one to make your Starbucks coffee, your pizza-by-the-slice on Granville, your McDonalds... Hell, most of the retail stores in Vancouver don't pay their employees much more than that. What's the point of people working in Vancouver if they have to spend a good chunk of their earnings on transiting into Vancouver from elsewhere?

But really, how much is furniture? You can buy a decent mattress set at The Brick or somewhere for cheap when they're on sale (which is always), and pick up a second hand desk/couch/dining table/everything else on CL, garage sale, hand-me-downs, etc. You're basically paying a a $2-300 premium for furniture that you theoretically would have paid off before your first year of tenancy is over.



I dunno. Not a fan of it. I like the concept, but I feel it's overpriced for what it is. I've been in dormrooms that were bigger than these places...

And you get to keep it when you leave...
