A mixed use development with 48 residential units on a main transit corridor. Four shop units face the main street (Broadway) at ground level, with three floors of apartments above.
Located on the corner of East Broadway and Quebec Street in the Mount Pleasant district, the ground floor faces a busy east-west transit corridor running across this part of Vancouver. Ground floor retail and the residential units above sit on the site’s northern boundary. Residential units on this northern façade have floor-to-ceiling glazing, taking full advantage of spectacular views across Vancouver, its harbour and mountains beyond. These north facing units will however lack sunlight in winter and do not have decks to maximise viewing opportunities. Building adaptability options include the opportunity for some of the north facing units to be designed for possible use as offices.
The 48 residential units are arranged in a back-to-back arrangement, accessed from a central corridor. The four floors of south facing units front a quiet residential street.
The entrance to the residential units is off a side street (Quebec Street). The residential units range between 60-67m2 with the interiors having “one-plus-one” partitioning that can be configured in different floor plan options. This allows a degree of customisation to form a living room/bedroom, bedroom/guest room or live/work (bedroom/office) options.
Parking for residents is provided in a basement car park accessed from the rear service lane.
