6301 Cambie Street

Located a long way outside our usual geography (although maybe we’ll have to add a new chapter along the Canada Line in future book editions) this proposed 6-storey condo project was different enough to warrant inclusion. It’s one of the very first projects out of the gate opened by the Cambie Corridor Plan that allows 6-storey buildings along Cambie Street close to stations. This is another sharp design from GBL; it was already re-zoned in June, there’s a development permit submitted and this is the model the Urban Design Panel supported in mid October.

It’ll be interesting to see if other projects will be contemporary or more traditional – judging from the agents sales boards up and down the street there could be a lot of them! This one is mixed use (retail at grade) and has 50 units.

    I assume this will be replacing two houses (duplexes) that are next to the Oakridge Baptist Church. If so, I think that’s a nice width for a building of this type. I’d like to see a lot of different buildings on Cambie, rather than some really long (wide) buildings. Streets that have a variety of buildings are always more interesting than ones dominated by just a few huge buildings.

    Neighbours call it the “White Elephant”.
    Not a fan of this design. Agreed, TOO commercial looking and it seems it’s already (from the comments from a few of it’s new occupants) experienced a main water line breakage at the top floor. Lets see how this building holds up over the next 2 years.
