Manhattan Housing Co-op

view location

This well-known building at the corner of Robson and Thurlow was built in 1908 by lumber baron WL Tait. It was about to be demolished in 1979 until a number of residents formed a co-op and saved it. It is currently occupied by low-to-middle income residents, and there is a long line of applicants waiting to get in. You can find a more detailed history of the building here
