Two months since our last update, and progress at the site of The Regent at King Edward has been moving along nicely, the Mount Pleasant-area mid-rise project now almost completely clad. Located at the corner of Cambie St and W King Edward Ave, at the heart of Cambie Village, and adjacent to the King Edward SkyTrain Station, the 6-storey, 66-unit residential block is well-poised to attract buyers looking for urban-neighbourhood vibe.

Designed by GBL Architects for Regent International Development, the mid-rise's multi-volume exterior features a mix of brick, glass, and spandrel. The Regent at King Edward will make good use of the various setbacks, providing many units with direct access to one of two separate rooftop terraces.

Around to the rear of the development, a collection of two-storey townhomes will provide a family-friendly component to the project, allowing for a full range of housing options. Typical of developments in the area, the availability of more traditional layouts will likely be a plus for those in the neighbourhood who are looking to downsize from their homes.

Part of the King Edward corridor's ongoing transition from sleepy semi-suburban stretch to lively pedestrian thoroughfare, this project, along with several others now either recently completed or underway, appears to be right on target. 

SkyriseVancouver will be sure to return to this project as progress continues. For more information, check out the associated Database file and Forum thread, and as always, feel free to join the conversation in the comments section below.
