Description

700 West Eighth Avenue is tailored to the urban fabric of Vancouver’s Fairview Slopes. Its massing is broken down into two mini towers – 17 storeys and 12 storeys – that are adjacent to the taller buildings along the busy thoroughfare of Broadway.

Originally a parking lot for an adjacent hotel and casino, the project team took a completely fresh look at the best typology for this site which involved a fairly long and at times noisy rezoning that utilized a portion of the heritage density that we had created at Woodward’s.

With ten townhouses, six non-market senior’s apartments, and 106 market residential units, the project contributes to Vancouver’s eco-density initiative. It brings an influx of people within walking distance of the shopping, offices, entertainment, and transit located along the busy Broadway/Cambie corridor. A series of green walls and landscaped terraces and roofs are woven throughout the project. A large pool in the central courtyard reflects the sun, maximizing natural light.

Sustainability features include geothermal heating and cooling, rainwater retention, and solar shading. Extensive planting walls animate the façade while lessening heating and air conditioning demands.With interior design by award-winning McFarlane Green Biggar Architecture + Design, the homes at 700 West 8th feature a level of finishings above and beyond the rest. Spacious layouts and thoughtful design make 700 West 8th an uncompromising choice.
