Alabaster plans condos on Ash Street near Heather Lands

Alabaster Homes is proposing three condo buildings on a land assembly consisting of eight single-family home sites on Ash Street, near West 35th Avenue.

The development, designed by GBL Architects, will include two four-storey buildings and one six-storey building, with a total of 133 strata condo units, over 185 underground parking stalls. There will also be 242 bicycle parking spaces.

The architects describe the design of the buildings as “clearly related, with similar materials and massing, however, the facade rhythm and balconies are utilized to help individualize each building.”

Amenities for the residents will be extensive, with rooftop amenity areas for both four-storey buildings, and a ground-oriented amenity space for the six-storey building with a focus on families with children.
