Grosvenor Ambleside

A rare opportunity to revitalise a waterfront community and shopping district in West Vancouver

Grosvenor Ambleside infuses new life into this waterfront community.

A commitment to the arts

Accompanying the first building are two iconic art installations created by Douglas Coupland, OBC which we have voluntarily contributed to the West Vancouver community. In addition, we have dedicated two of Gordon Smith's diptych paintings to Grosvenor Ambleside residents, and these will be situated in the lobbies of both buildings. 

We are also supporting local arts and culture by way of sponsoring the local Kay Meek Community Centre. In addition to providing a donation to the Centre, a portion of the development's public realm will be used by Kay Meek for live music performances throughout the year.

This new development designed by James KM Cheng embraces West Coast modernism with two terraced buildings. A collection of 98 residences designed by Mitchell Freedland, built using locally sourced materials and containing state-of-the-art technology by Millson, sit above specialty shops, cafes and restaurants. Hundreds of West Vancouver residents helped our team define the distinctive design through ‘ideas fairs’ and other public meetings.

A glazed pedestrian galleria, open at both ends, will join the two buildings and provide a public plaza with a vibrant and engaging streetscape filled with shops, restaurants, music and art. The galleria creates a direct pedestrian route to the beach, seawall and waterfront. Four Vancouver establishments help to anchor the growing community of tenants: Meinhardt Fine Foods, Heirloom Vegetarian Restaurant, Ancora Restaurant and a new, elevated concept by Earls Restaurants.

Once home to a contaminated gas station, the former brownfield site on which the development is located was remediated while building Phase I, with 90% of waste from construction diverted from landfill to recycling facilities. As a potential response to dealing with rising ocean levels, a road to the south of the site has been elevated by almost a metre to protect the development from high tides. 

The first building completed in 2018 and construction is underway for the second and final building comprising 42 homes.
