3215 Macdonald Street featured in the Daily Hive

February 15, 2024

We’re pleased to announce the rezoning application of 16th & MacDonald, a new purpose-built rental and mixed-use in the Arbutus Ridge neighbourhood. The project was published in the Daily Hive this week.

Replacing a single-storey commercial building, the project will provide secure rental housing to the area without displacing other housing, supporting the City’s goal of densifying along major arteries. The project completes a bustling corner that already features a gas station, office complex, and two shopping malls.⁠

Design + Character:⁠
•Retail Activation: Open and transparent retail spaces along the ground level wrap around the building, activating the street edge along 16th & MacDonald.⁠
•Distinct Massing: The form is characterized by a series of dynamic interconnected boxes, creatively joined through a recessed step-in and decking.⁠
•Articulated Façade: A combination of punch and ribbon windows interlaced by metal and wood paneling energize the exterior.⁠
•Height Variation: The form reaches its peak on the north corner, strategically positioned near public transit links, and gracefully steps down towards the residential neighborhood for harmonious integration into the community.

We look forward to sharing more about this project as it progresses!
