A month since we last checked in at the site of The Regent at King Edward, and progress on the exterior detail work has all but completed. Located at the corner of Cambie St and King Edward, in the heart of Cambie Village, the aptly-named mid-rise residential development will bring soon deliver 66 units to the quickly densifying neighbourhood.

The 6-storey mid-rise block was designed by GBL Architects for Regent International Development, the structure's multi-volume facade composed of a mix of materials including brick, spandrel, and glass. The purposeful setbacks will be the future site of two rooftop terraces, which will be shared by all residents.

Facing onto both the bustling Cambie Street corridor, and up-and-coming King Edward thoroughfare, the project joins a long list of similar-sized developments to go up in the vicinity over the last few years. Located close to transit and just a few blocks away from the lush, sprawling gardens of Queen Elizabeth Park, the project has much to offer to incoming residents and prospective buyers.

Situated to the rear of the development a small row of two-storey townhomes will provide a more traditional housing option for those looking to downsize from a single-family home to a condo. Once complete, The Regent at King Edward will represent a net positive for the neighbourhood, the project part of Cambie Village's ongoing urban transformation. 

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.
