Here’s a recently completed development on a narrow site in the Downtown Eastside. Christopher Bozyk Architects designed this 9-storey 60 unit project for a fifty feet wide lot next door to Stan Douglas’s artists studio (that was built in about 2007). We first featured it nearly four years ago when details of the design were first released.
The revised render on the right shows the version that was illustrated on the sales website. The project has two floors of commercial space and a shared landscaped rooftop garden, and the developer is Port Capital Group (as Port Living) who previously developed the interestingly designed 2211 Cambie project now called South Creek Landing.
The striking use of two shades of yellow/gold lift what would otherwise be an almost invisible monochrome building to an entirely different level. The scale is very much in keeping with the older buildings nearby, and with very modest setbacks the built density is actually greater than most Downtown tower projects.
