Park Place is a new condo development on Arbutus & 10th by Bastion Development Corporation currently in preconstruction at 2120 West 10th Avenue, Vancouver. Park Place has a total of 48 units.
The five-storey building, designed by SLA (Stephane Laroye Architect Inc.) for Bastion Development Corp., will include 48 condominium units (one- and two-bedroom) as well as ground floor retail and restaurant space. The architect says the retail space will be designed to be affordable.
What’s distinctive about the development are its efforts in sustainability. In addition to striving for Passive House Certification, the mass timber structure (CLT) will help sequester carbon, and electric-only residential heat, air conditioning and domestic hot water will also help to reduce carbon emissions.
The development’s 66 underground parking stalls will all be EV-ready, and will be complemented by 118 bicycle parking stalls.
The architect says the Park Place on Arbutus is designed in its development to fit into the local low-rise context and architectural language of the neighbourhood, and serve as a gateway between the low-rise scale of Arbutus Walk and the future scale of the Broadway corridor to the north, where the SkyTrain extension is currently under construction.
Located in Kitsilano on the final parcel of the Arbutus Walk neighbourhood, a former Carling O’Keefe (Molson) brewery site, this conceptual design of a 4-storey mixed-use building caters to those who see elegant luxury as having the opportunity to customize their spacious unit without being ostentatious or combining units into ‘grandes espaces’. The neighbourly massing respects the adjacent buildings and reinforces a strong sense of human scale. The exterior materials, influenced by New York’s Madison Avenue, are envisaged to be calming and light stone with champagne coloured windows and balcony guards.
