The best regions to live in Canada

If you’re looking to move to Canada but unsure where’s best to live, this handy guide to the best regions to live in will help you.

Six single-family lots on West 41st to become 88 new homes

The development, known as The Bromley, will consist of two, four-storey wood frame buildings on West 41st Avenue and two townhouse blocks on the laneway, with a landscaped courtyard in between them.

A rezoning for the Aaron Webster Housing Co-operative proposes adding a six-storey co-op housing building at East Pender and Victoria Drive.

The new building will have 64 units over 29 parking stalls. It is targeting low to moderate income households, seniors and those with disabilities.

The present building on the site is a four story multi-family apartment building set for demolition.

“The dominant exterior materials are hardipanel and a reverse board and batten siding. The building rests on monolithic frames that ground the base of the building to the site while the feature coloured upper levels break up the massing with a mix of vaulted pop ups,” states the design rationale.

The project also features design strategies to reduce passive energy consumption. Horizontal sun screens on the south and vertical sun screens on the east and west living spaces will help reduce summer heat gain and negate the need for air conditioning.

The application is being considered under the Grandview-Woodland Community Plan.
