Yamamoto Architecture has designed a five-storey, light industrial and office building for a site near Napier Street and Clark Drive.

A unique, mixed-use building proposed for 3868 Rupert Street will provide a new home for a local grocery store, as well as 98 rental apartments.

Chong Lee Market has been operating in an older building on the site for the past 20 years. The building, which is over 50 years old, is in need of replacement.

There will be 67 parking stalls for the retail units, and 70 stalls for the residential units.

Fa莽ade materials include聽dark charcoal brick,聽grey brick and white cementitious panels. There will be timber cladding around the residential entrance.

An amenity roof terrace is located on level two, providing a kids play area and urban agriculture opportunities. An additional amenity lounge and roof terrace is located on level six, benefitting from extensive views, sunlight and outdoor space for residents.

The project was designed by GBL Architects.
