Porte Houses has sent a Rezoning and Advancement Permit application to help with the development of a 2 building apartment job in the Maillardville location of Coquitlam.
The 0.23 acre website is consisted of an existing older strata townhouse property located north of Brunette Avenue, in between Lebleu Street to the west and Nelson Street to the east.
The proposed rezoning is from RM-1 to C-5 per the MaillardvilleNeighbourhood Plan (MNP) which designates the site as NeighbourhoodCentre.
The proposal requires 2 woodframe condo structures at 5-storeys and 7-storeys, consisting of:
123 apartment systems;
67 one-bedrooms, 44 two-bedrooms and 12 three-bedrooms;
an overall density of 2.25 FAR;
177 underground parking stalls.
Porte got the website in 2018 for $9,000,000 or $89 per buildable sq ft.
The application explains the design reasoning: “The design of the buildings integrates unique French architectural functions, consisting of a modern interpretation of mansard roofing systems. A colour scheme of white, grey, charcoal, iron, and black is proposed, with materials including masonry, painted cementitious panels, standing seam metal cladding, architectural concrete, simulated wrought iron components, prefinished painted aluminum trim, and clear glass guardrails.”
The designer for the project is Formwerks.
