The proposed development site encompasses a complete block bound by W 1st Ave to the north, W 2nd Ave to the south, Cook Street to the west and Columbia St to the East.
The site has been rezoned to allow a 75m high linear building with a predominantly east/west orientation along the Cook street edge. This creates an open wedge on the west side of the site, which becomes a natural extension to the “Hinge Park” to the north. The rezoning proposal was consistent with the SEFC master plan.
The new form presents a curving building rather than a linear one. The arc embraces the open space to the west and generates more waterfront views to the residents.
A large opening breaks down the building’s arched façade allowing pedestrian and visual connections to the waterfront from Cook Street.
The carving extends across the south west façade, separating the amenity uses on the ground floor from the residential component above. The recess creates a sheltered outdoor amenity space at the 3rd level which benefits from sun exposure and allows natural light into the corridors.The carving terminates at the south corner of the building emphasizing the prominent intersection of 2nd Ave and Columbia.
They have allowed for a mid-block pedestrian connection through the site by opening a 2 to 5 storey “portal” through the building. This links the east-west lane across from Cook Street to Columbia street and First Avenue. Statutory Right of Ways will ensure public use of these pedestrian rotes.
The building provides a large amount of amenity space for residents with approximately 3,400 SF of indoor amenity (10 SF per unit) and more than 28,000 SF of common outdoor amenity (113 SF per unit). This number does not include private outdoor spaces such as patios or balconies.
Common outdoor amenity spaces include: Child paly areas, urban agriculture, water features, walkways and lounge/BBQ areas on the ground floor; and a dog park plus an additional play area at the 3rd floor.
Indoor amenity rooms include: Fitness room and a multipurpose room with a full kitchen at the ground level; and a reading area at the 3rdlevel. All of these have direct access to an outdoor amenity space.
Both child play areas are directly connected to an indoor amenity for adult supervision.
The development provides a variety of unit types with 44% family units and 56% one bedrooms. Total number of units proposed is 247.
CHARACTER & EXPRESSION
The site’s proximity to the water will be celebrated through the extensive water features, including ponds, bridges and waterfalls. High quality decorative paving will be used in all areas of the project and Metal sculptural elements are proposed to reference the surrounding a rea’s rich industrial heritage. In keeping with sustainable initiatives of the SEFC neighborhood, the rooftops will feature intensive green roofs at the private units, and extensive green roofs at the inaccessible areas. Storm water will be collected in a cistern at the north end of the site, and used for irrigation.
At the north side of the building, the landscaping at the building edge will be private, with small patios interfacing with the pond edge and ornamental planting provided for the private units. Private yards are provided for ground level units facing adjoining streets. The yard spaces facing the public realm provide interface between the public and private realm. Each yard provides entry to the unit, with usable paved terrace and planting.
PUBLIC AMENITY AREAS
At the northern precinct of the site, the landscape will become publicly accessible, with pedestrian connections to the large water feature and paths. These connections will facilitate circulation through the site, to adjacent roads, and to
the public parks to the north. The public street sidewalk areas will conform to the SEFC Design Guidelines.
PRIVATE AMENITY AREAS
At the ground level, an outdoor patio is provided for the building’s north side amenity room, with a bridge to an intimate outdoor seating area. At the south side of the building, outdoor access is provided from the amenity room to the barbecue and urban agriculture areas. The outdoor level 3 amenity area provides for a variety of uses in an experientially rich and aesthetically pleasing common space that also has strong visual interest when viewed from below. The covered outdoor space will incorporate three main programmes, a dog run, children’s play area, and an outdoor exercise area. Each area will be separated with low fencing and or planting, but are intended to encourage communal activities.
Plants have been selected to provide a variety of interest throughout the year and to serve a wide variety of functions such as screening and division between private residences. All plants have been chosen for their exemplary characteristics such as form, texture, flowers or fall colour. In general plants have been selected that are native or “low resource” adaptable plants i.e. requiring minimal irrigation or fertilizers once established.
