Cressey has filed a development application for a mixed-use building at Kingsway and Dumfries Street, on the site of a former RONA store.
The new building will have 154 units, including townhouses along Fleming St. and Dumfries St. It includes a six-storey podium with a 13-storey tower. It appears to be rental, although it’s not clear in the development application.
Architecture is by Rositch Hemphill Architects of Vancouver, who detailed some of the challenges they’ve had with the irregular shape of the site.
“The design is a direct response to the irregular site, one that has little precedence in Vancouver,” states the design rationale.
The development also includes 23,000 sq ft. of commercial space, including a grocery store of approximately 10,000 sq ft., as well as office space.
