This apartment building on the corner of Prior and Jackson Avenue was once home to many of Vancouver's black residents. The apartments are located directly across from what used to be the community's black church, the Fountain chapel (now Basel Hakka Lutheran Church).

The excessive amount of signage in front of the apartment is a reminder of the historic relationship between this east-side neighbourhood and the city's heavy-handed urban planners and developers.
