Last fall, SHAPE Architecture took part in two public open houses for an up-and-coming project located on the border between Royal Oak and Carey in Saanich. The rezoning proposes a 21,400 sq. m. new development consisting of 251 rental units and affordable housing. Amenities such as childcare, café, and office units will be integrated in a large external public space characterized by a strong landscaped route created through the site as well as an elevated open air public realm. Stay tuned as the project develops its sustainable approaches—both in terms of social inclusion and interaction, as well as energy and performance.
