The following information is from the Threshold Housing Society:
“Threshold Housing Society has exciting news! We are working with partners to redesign the site of 1502 Davie St (Forrest House)
Quick facts about this project:
Threshold Housing Society is compelled to begin to address the staggering gap in beds for youth at risk due to the desperate need of safe homes and support services for at-risk youth in our community, Threshold is embarking on a re-development program for the Forrest House site, located at 1502 Davie Street, Victoria, BC.
The site is located along a major transit hub that provides quick connections to downtown and the university.
It is surrounded by many thriving businesses within a 5-minute walk, including two grocery stores and Oak Bay High School.
The site is owned and operated by Threshold Housing Society.
Located near a vibrant community hub bordering the City of Victoria and the District of Oak Bay, the building is aging and located in a region where redevelopment is beginning to occur, creating a prime opportunity to double the unit density on the site.
