Nestled within the Cambie Village neighbourhood, the proposed development highlights a number of significant features to provide a high degree of design excellence. The site massing consists of two three-storey structures with access to rooftop terraces. The ground-oriented units are designed to address the streetscape along W 28th Avenue and Ash Street with individual private entries. A single level of underground parking, accessed from the lane, provides stalls and storage lockers for residents.
The program for the redevelopment will increase the availability of housing for the City of Vancouver, bringing 12 residential units of varying unit types to the community. The development proposes three-bedroom units suitable for families.
With ground-oriented urban townhomes, the development seeks to activate the public realm along the streets while providing an alternative to single-family homes. This will improve and enhance the neighborhood with modern architectural character and features. Overall, the proposed development will bring a balanced architectural language that combines sensitivity to the natural features of the city with a modern vocabulary inspired by the context of the unique neighbourhood environment.
