Tofino Attainable Housing

In 2008, Robert Brown, and his partner from reSource, were asked by the Tofino Housing Corporation to undertake a development feasibility assessment of their proposed housing project on District land in the West Coast community of Tofino. The proposal was to develop affordable home ownership opportunities and affordable rental housing for local residents. We reviewed the proposed property, undertook a market analysis of current prices, land values and construction costs. We then prepared a report to Tofino Housing and the District Council which laid out a feasible and manageable development plan for the first two stages providing approximately 70 affordable homes for sale and rent.
