Vancouver City Council has approved the building of secondary suites in new condo developments. The suites could be made as small as 205 square-feet if they reach certain criteria.
Councillor Raymond Louie says the city understands the suites are small but such developments have been successful in other areas of Metro Vancouver. “The expectation is that these are really transitional units, that they will fill a need for a period of time and as your needs change, you would move on to a larger place.”
