Twelve wooden pods were added to a converted Regent Road warehouse to serve Macari Centre patrons. Each pod includes a lockable front door, bed, television, and eight square meters of open space. The council worked with repair company Unitas to convert warehouse space into restrooms, a kitchen, and laundry facilities. City officials and Unitas expected to add 12 more pods to the facility for increased capacity.
