The best regions to live in Canada

If you’re looking to move to Canada but unsure where’s best to live, this handy guide to the best regions to live in will help you.

Wesgroup has submitted a rezoning application for one of several former gas station sites owns across Vancouver.

The lot, at the corner of Cambie and West 16th, was previously home to a Chevron service station, before the gas station was closed and the site turned into a community garden.

Wesgroup has applied to construct a six-storey, mixed-use development with 47 condominium units and ground floor retail, including a restaurant on the corner, with a large, sliding window system that will see the premises open up to the street.

The architects say the building “aims to be Vancouver’s first concrete high performance mixed-use building that sets a precedent for architectural excellence in the revitalized Cambie Corridor.”

The façade’s unique structure — made up of “shifting boxes” — is meant to break down the mass of the building, as well as allowing for a corner window in every unit.

On the south wall of the new building, public art is being proposed, rather than leaving a blank wall, ahead of expected future redevelopment adjacent to the site.

There will be 38 underground parking stalls and 96 bicycle spaces provided.

A community open house is scheduled for July 16, 2019 from 5:00 p.m. -7:30 p.m. at St Mary’s Ukrainian Catholic Centre, 3150 Ash Street, Vancouver.

Architects are Olson Kundig of Seattle and IBI Group.
