Thurlow Street Construction

2000-2004: The Construction Years

The Province of BC first pledged to support and fund the community’s concept for Mole Hill, and in the 1999 the City eventually committed to this vision of an eco-friendly, diverse, affordable heritage residential environment that would be a boon to all of the West End.

Construction began in 1999 and by 2002 seventy suites had been modernised and re-occupied, with the remaining 100 being completed the following year.

Maintaining and restoring the heritage features of the houses was a major priority. Heritage features both inside and out were retained and restored. Outdoor space was organised to create gardens, outdoor areas for tenants to use as well as public green space and amenities.
