Another rental project at Vancouver moves closer to completion at 1754-1772 Pendrell Street. Developed by Westbank Corp, with design by Henriquez Partners Architects, the 21-storey building is now topped out.
When complete, the project will have a gross floor area of 121,115 square feet and will contain 178 residential units. Of these, 152 will be market rental units, comprised of 43 studio, 37 one-, 50 two-, and 22 three-bedroom units. It will also contain 26 below-market rental units comprised of seven studio, 14 one-, two two-bedroom units, and three three-bedroom units. The below-market rental units will be secured for 30 years at 20 percent below the average West End rental rate. There will be 82 vehicle parking spaces in three levels of underground parking, and 219 bicycle parking spaces.
The project will also include a landscaped public space with an amenity room and rock garden. In addition to the below-market rental units, the project will pay a community amenity contribution of $250,000. A heritage house built in 1905 was also saved from demolition and moved to a different location.
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.
