A rare opportunity to revitalise a waterfront community and shopping district in West Vancouver
Our development, designed by architect James KM Cheng and interior designer Mitchell Freedland, embraces West Coast modernism with two terraced buildings housing a collection of 98 residences above specialty shops, cafes and restaurants.
A pedestrian galleria joining the two buildings opens to a vibrant public plaza and creates a direct route to the beach, seawall and waterfront.
We engaged with hundreds of West Vancouver residents at ‘idea fairs’ and other public meetings to help our team define the distinctive design.
Once a contaminated gas station, we remediated the site while building Phase I, with 90% of waste from construction diverted from landfill to recycling facilities. As a potential response to rising ocean levels, we elevated a road to the south of the site by almost a metre to protect the development from future high tides.
We completed the first building in 2018 and the second and final building in September 2020.
