The Lux

The Lux

The Lux is a non-market housing project on West Pender Street

The Lux was the first of a series of new social housing projects being built in Vancouver, several of them in the Downtown Eastside. Completed in 2009, the building, by Gomberoff Bell Lyon (now called GBL) features a bedbug sauna to eradicate the persistent annoyance.

Once the site of the Lux cinema (hence the name) the site was a parking lot for many years.
