PROJECT UPDATE: Vancouver Masonic Centre + Affordable Housing
The Vancouver Masonic Centre + Affordable Housing project had a successful Occupancy Review with the City of Vancouver last week, which means that 150 units of housing are becoming available to a city that desperately needs them!
This past month enjoyed an accelerated completion of finishing details that completed the building’s form and character. Metal cladding, limestone cladding, patio paving, tile work and guardrails have all come to completion. Final touches of landscaping installations have completely transformed the worksite into an urban oasis, with trees, shrubs and sedums animating the interior courtyard “mews”, and the nine levels of green roof spaces that terrace up around it. Civil and landscape sidewalks along 7th and 8th Avenue connect the interior courtyards and entrances to the neighborhood streets and sidewalks.
While we are proud of the contribution that the building makes to the Vancouver skyline, and enjoy discovering the various vantage points in the city that disclose the tower’s iconic white, columnar cladding, we are also very pleased to be making a societal impact in contributing to the provision of affordable housing for the City of Vancouver.
