We’ve created this simple map that plots the geographic location of hotels and other buildings that were purchased by the BC government. In an article from the CBC, reporter Justin McElroy tabulated the purchase prices for the hotels and other buildings that were purchased to provide housing for people without homes. In total, the purchase price was around $250 million for approximately 750 beds. It might be worth noting that not a single building purchased is on the west side of Vancouver. The map shows that these new facilities are clustered around Strathcona, the downtown peninsula and along the Kingsway corridor.
