Vision SoHo is an alliance formed between six non-profit housing developers to collectively and expediently address London’s housing crisis by creating beautifully designed, environmentally friendly, and well-managed buildings. These developments will range in affordability—some being market rate and others at affordable and deeply affordable rates—and will offer a variety of unit types catering to single individuals, couples as well as families.
Indwell is a founding member of the Vision SoHo Alliance, and will create and operate 138 units of deeply affordable housing with supports, retrofitting two heritage buildings. Over 680 units will be created in total. The focus area for the development is the Old Victoria Hospital Lands. The Vision SoHo Alliance closed on the land in the fall 2022, and will begin construction in 2023.
Indwell is eager to take on restoring the two heritage buildings on the site: the Health Services Building and the War Memorial Children’s Hospital. They are beautiful buildings with important and rich ties to our city’s history. The two buildings will be retrofitted to create 138 new apartments, 96 at the Health Services Building and 42 at the Children’s Hospital. The Health Services Building will include a community space in the Auditorium offering food security and other amenities to the entire development and SoHo neighbourhood.
Fund this project
Gifts received for these projects will be used as directed by the donor with the understanding that if it has been fully funded—or cannot be completed for any reason as determined by Indwell—the remaining amount of the donation will be used where needed most.
Support Construction Costs
Nurses for Housing
Led by a campaign cabinet of nursing leaders, the Nurses for Housing campaign has set a goal of $150,000. As we emerge from a pandemic that has left many of us heavily burdened, we find strength in the hope of new beginnings, of transforming both lives and buildings. All funds raised will support Indwell’s transformation of the former Children’s Hospital into 42 units of deeply affordable housing with on-site supports.
