Marcon is planning an 18-storey, 100 per cent rental building on West 42nd Avenue near Oakridge.
The tower will contain 215 rental units, including 40 below-market rental units, and 97 underground parking stalls. There will be 400 bicycle parking spaces.
The proposal includes 35 per cent family-oriented units (two and three-bedroom), an outdoor amenity on the podium at the 5th floor connected with an indoor amenity, and a larger indoor-outdoor amenity space on the top floor.
The design is described by Rositch Hemphill Architects as follows:
“The building consists of a 4 storey podium and tower. The tower has a clean and timeless expression, with a monochromatic mix of windows and solid spandrel / panels and generous balconies. The lower levels have a finer grain detailing to relate to the pedestrian activity on the streets. The SW corner is treated as a large 2 storey outdoor lobby, as an extension of the interior lobby, with opportunities for outdoor furnishing and social interaction. It is the focal point at the intersection of two park connectors and offers a moment of rest and celebration.”
The application is being considered under the Cambie Corridor Plan.
