Vision SoHo Alliance
This Alliance is a first-of-its-kind in Canada partnership of six non-profit housing developers, invited by London Community Foundation to build the single largest affordable housing development in London’s history on the former Victoria Hospital lands in the SoHo community. A total of 680 rental units will be created.
SoHo, or South of Horton, is one of the city’s oldest neighbourhoods. Formerly called St. David’s Ward, SoHo has been home over the years to indigenous people and immigrants from many countries. As a result, this community has cultural diversity.
To celebrate this history, stories collected during a two-year project by public historians at Western University will be installed on plaques, art and interactive displays on the site of the new housing development. New tenants and the community can gain a perspective of their home through history.
In addition, the Vision SoHo Alliance will be involved in a food sustainability project made possible thanks to a generous donation to the London Community Foundation.
