A rarely available mixed-use development opportunity in North Vancouver
Edgemont Village is a desirable and affluent community at the foot of the North Shore mountains and only a short distance from downtown Vancouver.
Being one of North Vancouver’s most popular village centres, development sites in Edgemont Village are rare. We took this opportunity to build Connaught, 82 high-quality concrete condominiums and townhomes for downsizers and young families, accompanied by ground-floor retail.
The thoughtfully designed interiors by Scott Trepp include air conditioning, premium finishes and generous outdoor spaces, while the West Coast contemporary architecture by Rositch Hemphill Architects complements the surrounding neighbourhood and natural environment.
Enhancing an already eclectic streetscape, we anchored the retail component with Thrifty Foods, a full-service grocery store, and also included Shoppers Drug Mart, Bufula Pizzeria, The Green Moustache and Cantina Norte. In addition, we integrated public plazas, art and wider sidewalks to bring neighbours and families together.
Construction commenced in 2016 and is scheduled to complete in Q2 2019. During construction, we diverted 80% of waste from landfill to recycling facilities.

When Cafe Norte closed in North Vancouver in 1998, loyal customers tried to raise money to keep it open. Now, 20 years later, the beloved Mexican restaurant has been reincarnated by the children of the original owners into a brand-new, modern interpretation named Cantina Norte, located in Connaught’s retail mix.
