GHS at Paisley Place
Our land on Paisley Place
Paisley Place, Gabriola Island, Summer 2019
Through a very generous donation by Emcon Services Inc., Gabriola Housing Society has acquired 8 acres (3.24 hectares) of beautiful, suitable land surrounding the end of Paisley Place (lots 1, 2, and 4 on the map below) where we hope to build affordable multi-dwelling rental housing. The property is close to the village, the school, health centres, shopping, transportation, the Commons, and Huxley Park.
We envision 24 rental dwellings, mainly for people with low to moderate income, in a variety of dwelling sizes averaging 900 sq ft (83.6 sq m), and clustered in a way that disturbs as few trees as possible. We also plan to preserve a substantial forest buffer between the new homes and the neighbours on Lockinvar Lane by building on Lots 1 and 2 to the east and north of Paisley Place.
Be sure to check out the current site plan and presentation PDF made by our Development Consultant Ian Scott, shown to the public on November 16, 2019 at the Community Hall. Visit the Paisley Place site plan page here.
