The development will include a mid-block plaza with a landscaped courtyard, with what’s being called a “large urban tree grove.”

The trees will be nourished by an underground stormwater storage system, connected to the development’s various green roofs.

288 underground parking spaces and 559 bicycle spaces will be provided. Architects are DIALOG.

The application is being considered under the Cambie Corridor Plan(External link).

The development is across the street from Westbank and QuadReal’s redevelopment of Oakridge Centre, which will add over 2,500 new homes, a nine-acre urban park and over 800,000 sq ft of new retail space in a revitalized shopping mall.
