A transit oriented development that incorporates a wide range of functions, including large and small format retail, commercial space and residential units and a landscaped podium roof. A mix of uses in the truest sense of the word in a dense urban environment.
Developed in anticipation of the new Canada Line and the Cambie Rail Station just across the road, Crossroads is a mixed use development that has a two storey podium with two 8 storey towers, one residential and the other offices. The podium covers most of the site and contains a mix of retail and commercial uses. It is located 15 minutes south of downtown and is a leading example of transit-oriented, mixed use development in Vancouver.
It sits on a large corner site on a block, with street boundaries along two main arterials and a smaller connector street, at the intersections of West Broadway and Cambie Street, diagonally opposite a train station on the Canada line. The complex also benefits from location on bus routes along Broadway and Cambie Street.
The project incorporates retail along the lower floors to all three streets, offices on the first and the two towers that rise from this podium. The residential block with 88 apartments runs north-south with double banked apartments facing east or west. They are set back from the main arterial. Residents have access to a landscaped roof garden, and all units have balconies with excellent views over the city. The development is home to large scale retailers Wholefoods and London Drugs, as well as other smaller retail and commercial businesses. All street interfaces connect directly to these retail outlets. The project is LEED Gold certified, integrating environmental design and green technologies, including green wall and roofs.
