A neighborhood of tiny homes is in the works in Vancouver, though you wouldn’t know it to look at the proposed site.
Located amid brambles just off the railroad north of Fruit Valley, the 1.5-acre chunk of land is currently home to just one structure: a railway switch station, built in the late 1800s.
An 1870s-era railway switch station undergoing renovations is nearly ready for tenants, the first piece of a planned development in Fruit Valley aimed at people who have been homeless.
