The proposed development, Second + Main by Create Properties will be designed to achieve a LEED Gold Certified status. Its location on two major transit arteries and close to cycle routes and community services, will support a reduced reliance on motor vehicles for transportation.

The building envelope of Second + Main will be designed to respond to the varying orientations of the building facades. Overhanging balconies, louvers or vertical screens will mitigate solar gain on southern, eastern or western facades. The use of durable cladding materials, will further enhance the sustainability of the project. These materials also speak to the heritage character of many of the original buildings along the Main Street corridor.

Tnergy demand for Second + Main will be further reduced through the use of high performance glazing systems and high efficiency heating and lighting systems

The proposal of Second + Main includes:
· 223 residential units
· 30 secured non-market rental units
· commercial uses at grade of approximately 1208 m² (13,000 sq. ft.)
· artist production space of approximately 325 m² (3,500 sq. ft.)
· a floor space ratio (FSR) of 5.50
· 230 parking stalls (total of 297 stalls including non-market rental units and retail)
· 23 studio, 145 one-bedroom & 58 two-bedroom

Landscape – The project will pursue opportunities to green or other wise landscape most of the roof surfaces, both as an amenity to the residents and to reduce rainwater run-off. Portions of the roof-top will also be dedicated to urban agriculture, while other areas will used as amenity/lounge space for residents. The courtyard and street frontages will also be enhanced with tree and shrub planting to reduce the heat island effect and bring nature into the site.

Non-Market Housing – The proposal includes 16,900 SF or 1,570 SM of non-market rental housing that will be comprised of 30 units owned by the city. These 30 units of housing will be provided to qualified Mount Pleasant residents significantly below market value and a method to retain this local attainable housing in the long term will be explored with the City of Vancouver.

Cultural Amenity – Artist Production Spaces. The project offers 3,500 SF, 325SM of Artist Production spaces, as suggested by neighborhood residents. This facility fronts onto East 3rd Ave. for maximum exposure and is also linked to the internal courtyard space. Programming of these internal and external spaces would be further explored with the neighborhood groups to determine uses and appropriate design features. The prospect of the new Emily Carr facility being established in the Great Northern Way Campus also speaks to the relevance of new Artist Production Spaces for the arts in this neighborhood.

Urban Agriculture – Portions of the rooftop will be offered to the residents for urban agriculture.

Public Plaza – The public plaza lays at the heart of the proposal, offering an outdoor public place easily accessible to pedestrians. The proposal has been designed around this space so that it received a maximum amount of sunlight throughout the year. And it’s location along the lane will help promote lane way activation as well as strengthen the pedestrian network across the neighbourhood.

This new project is seen as a benchmark development, incorporating many of the elements that the Mount Pleasant Community Plan document anticipates in the future growth of the neighborhood.
