Wesgroup has submitted the development application for their seventh and tallest tower at the Brewery District in New Westminster.
The Brewery District development is bounded by Royal Columbian Hospital, Brunette Avenue, the Sapperton residential district and an adjacent industrial area. It’s well-served by transit as the location of the Sapperton SkyTrain station. Fittingly, it also includes the head office for TransLink.
Tower seven will be the tallest building in the development, at 32 storeys. It will contain 225 market residential units, plus office and retail space in the podium levels, and a 9,400 sq ft. daycare facility.
Unit mix is proposed as follows:
- studio: 24
- one-bedroom: 98
- two-bedroom: 48
- two-bedroom and den: 23
- three-bedroom: 32
There will be 414 parking spaces total to serve the residential, office and retail tenants.
Wesgroup says the project will also include improvements to the pedestrian connection to the SkyTrain station. A transit plaza is proposed on the north side of the tower, to connect an existing walkway to the SkyTrain station.
In 2007, New Westminster city council approved a rezoning of the former Labatt brewery site to allow for the development of the Brewery District.
