VANCOUVER MAYOR UNVEILS AFFORDABLE, ECO-FRIENDLY, CARDBOARD HOUSING
(VANCOUVER) – Following through on his inaugural pledges to create affordable housing, cure homelessness and make Vancouver the “greenest city” on the planet, Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson unveiled his new housing initiative: Card-o-miniums.
“These homes are not only cost-effective and spacious, but they are also bio-degradable and even portable.” Beamed Robertson “If you don’t like your neighborhood, you can just pack it up, place all your belongings in it, and move across town. How many home owners can claim that?”
continued Robertson; “Vancouverites are amongst the most creative people in the world. Card-ominiums can be adjusted to provide a front porch, gazebo, solarium and a even picket fence, whatever your lifestyle requires. They offer the opportunity for everyone to be an architect!”
Units range from 125 to 300 dollars, depending on height, width and level of thickness of the cardboard. Models are named CONtain, PackAGE, ReCycle and This Side Up.
Plans are even in place to begin construction on a 17-story cardboard high rise Boxtower, this afternoon. The work should be completed some time next week.
