52 Townhouses Proposed for West Vancouver Site

An initial proposal has actually been advanced by Canderel for a website on Inglewood Opportunity, simply East of Taylor Method West Vancouver.

The site is an assembly of five single family lots totaling 61,237 SF. The website sits surrounding Cedardale Elementary School. The current zoning is RS3 and the proposition would look for to designate the zoning based upon RM2 & & RM5.

The pre-application website can be seen here.

Details of the proposition include:

52 stacked townhouse units;
13 one-bedroom garden flats, 23 two-bedrooms & & 16 three-bedrooms;
an overall density of 1.08 FAR;

126 underground parking spaces.

The pre-application website explains the design rationale:

The single entrance to the website will be off of Inglewood Avenue..

The architect for the project is Integra Architecture.

Three-storey townhouses along Inglewood Avenue would have a strong street presence with individual front entryways and backyards. The townhouses step back at the third floor lowering the scale of the buildings along the street to harmonize the existing 1 and 2 storey single family houses.”.

The rezoning proposition is seeking consideration under West Vancouvers current Official Community Plan, in specific with the policy (2.1.7) that supports the production of “missing out on middle” real estate options such as rowhouses, triplexes and other multi-family formats that produce alternatives for families and down-sizers.

The site is an assembly of 5 single household lots totaling 61,237 SF. The website sits adjacent Cedardale Elementary School.

” The homes would be developed to comply with Step 4 of the BC Energy Code, an exceptional level of energy effective building.
