The 6-storey Grayson mid-rise residential block by Pennyfarthing Development Group and RLA Architects has now reached completion near the intersection of King Edward and Cambie. Faced in a warm mix of materials ranging from brick, to wood, to spandrel, the 58-unit Grayson will soon be home to upwards of 100 new residents.

Located just one block SE of the bustling King Edward-Cambie corridor, the well-situated Grayson will place residents within easy striking distance of transit and two well-unequipped commercial thoroughfares. Close as well to the sprawling Queen Elizabeth Park and Hillcrest Aquatic Centre, Grayson's positioning within South Cambie will serve buyers well.

Taking a closer look at the exterior, the interplay of brick, glass, and cedar has benefitted the overall character of the structure. Though while it may yet be some time before all of the last details and landscaping work are complete, the all-but-finished final product appears to have come off well.

With occupancy - and spring - just around the corner, it will not be long before Grayson is in full bloom. Only the last in a parade of similar and in many cases, even larger developments to arrive, Grayson is part of a much larger trend of intensification in and around the King Edward-Cambie corridor.
