At West 20th and Arbutus Street, across from the Arbutus Greenway, PCI Developments is planning a six-storey, secured market rental building with 116 units. The development site is a land assembly consisting of five single-family lots.

The project, designed by BHA Architecture, falls under Vancouver’s Affordable Housing Choices Interim Rezoning Policy. 24 units (or 20 per cent) of the units will be designated as affordable to moderate income households.

The building’s rooftop will include an amenity area for residents, with planters, children’s play spaces, urban agriculture, BBQ and seating spaces.
