If you needed further proof of the insanity that is Vancouver’s current housing situation, look no further than the Fairview neighbourhood.

On Wednesday evening, the Heritage Housing Coop held an orientation and viewing of a two-bedroom unit in the area, and invited prospective renters to check it out.

And check it out they did.

“There was around 300 people looking at one-two bedroom apartment,” said Tristan Jasper, who was at the showing for the apartment which is located on the corner of West 8th Avenue and Heather Street.

Jasper told Daily Hive each group of people went in 20 at a time, and “people with children under 3 [years-old] got to go look at it first.”

Following the orientation, interested candidates were invited to sign up for a 45-minute interview with Heritage Housing Coop.
