Park Place at West 10th & Arbutus strives for sustainability

An upcoming development at West 10th and Arbutus Street, Park Place, will be constructed with sustainability top of mind, with a mass timber structure and passive house certification.

The five-storey building, designed by SLA (Stephane Laroye Architect Inc.) for Bastion Development Corp., will include 48 condominium units (one- and two-bedroom) as well as ground floor retail and restaurant space. The architect says the retail space will be designed to be affordable.

What’s distinctive about the development are its efforts in sustainability. In addition to striving for Passive House Certification, the mass timber structure (CLT) will help sequester carbon, and electric-only residential heat, air conditioning and domestic hot water will also help to reduce carbon emissions.

The development’s 66 underground parking stalls will all be EV-ready, and will be complemented by 118 bicycle parking stalls.

The architect says the building is designed to fit into the local low-rise context and architectural language of the neighbourhood, and serve as a gateway between the low-rise scale of Arbutus Walk and the future scale of the Broadway corridor to the north, where the SkyTrain extension is currently under construction.
