Secured market rentals proposed for Oak and West 70th

The rental applications in the City of Vancouver keep coming in 2020. 

Matchstick Development is planning 91 secured market rental units on Oak Street, between West 70th and 71st Avenue.

The site is currently occupied by two market rental buildings: a three-storey building at 8636 Oak Street and a four-storey building at 8656 Oak Street.

The rental units will be spread across two six-storey buildings, over two levels of underground parking with 78 stalls. The two buildings will be separated by a 24′ wide entrance court.

The unit mix will be as follows:

  • Studios: 45 units
  • One bedroom: 9 units
  • Two bedroom: 35 units
  • Three bedroom: 4 units

The façades will consist of a mix of metal panel cladding, opaque glazed cladding, pre-finished aluminum windows, window wall and painted concrete.

One “quiet space” and one fitness amenity space are provided at the corners of both buildings facing the entry gate and courtyard, “providing a tranquil common space entrance forecourt for the two residential buildings,” states W.T. Leung Architects in the design rationale.

The building will be LEED Gold certified as per the City’s “Green Building Policy for Rezoning.”

Extensive green roofs are proposed on the main roof area.
