The remaining residents at Vancouver's Little Mountain site have been granted a reprieve.
The Province, City, and site developer have signed an agreement that will allow up to 50 social housing units to built immediately prior to any rezoning.
Councillor Kerry Jang says remaining tenants will be able to stay on-site, "How we're actually doing this is, we're actually subdividing the property, and in so doing, we can actually build the social housing under the current zoning laws. And that way the folks can move in. But for the rest of the site, that will actually go through the regular rezoning process, and the developer is looking to come to City Council probably sometime in the new year."
More than 230 new social housing units will be built on the site with construction set to start next year.
