Olympic Village rental housing may get new management
A new group may begin managing the two City of Vancouver–owned nonmarket rental-housing buildings at the former Olympic Village starting in the fall.
COHO Management Services Society has no plans to renew its contract to operate the facilities at 122 and 80 Walter Hardwick Avenue. The group is an arm of the Co-operative Housing Federation of B.C.
According to COHO executive director Thom Armstrong, his company’s two-year contract ends on November 30.
However, Armstrong told the Straight in a recent phone interview that his company intends to stay on as the manager of the housing co-op on the site. The Athletes Village Housing Co-op is an 84-unit building located at 151 West 1st Avenue.
