138 East 8th Avenue

The Urban Design Panel have already reviewed, and supported this innovative housing project in Mount Pleasant. The innovative aspect is to use stacked modular construction. It isn’t the first project in the city to use this approach, and there are other developments that have reused shipping containers as their modular elements, but examples are few and far between.

Ankenman Marchand have designed the 18 unit building to be constructed from factory assembled modules that will be trucked to site and then stacked over the retail unit on the lower floor. The project already has an October date for the Development Permit Board.
