The secure market rental development proposes a mid-rise building of ten storeys, in a form that adds a signature to the 49th/Langara node on Cambie Street. The transit-oriented development is situated with significant setbacks off Cambie Street. The property is constrained by a below-grade Statutory Right of Way (associated with the underground skytrain station) which will be transformed into a public plaza flanked by a small retail and amenity spaces. A three-storey massing on the east side of the site responds to potential future developments of a similar scale. Following the Cambie Corridor guidelines, the building steps back further on all sides at the ninth storey, further reducing the massing and scale of the development.
The proposal fits within the gradual height increase of neighbouring developments along Cambie Street, defined by the Cambie Corridor Plan - transitioning from 6-8 storeys from the north up to 10 storeys towards 49th Avenue.
