About the Project

This project is currently undergoing rezoning to allow for a 105-unit, multifamily residential rental building. The unit mix will comprise of studio, 1, 2 and 3-bedroom units, with the majority of 3-bedroom units on the ground floor with exterior access making them ideal for families. The building will be six storeys in height, with the fifth and sixth storey being setback a full two meters from the fourth storey allowing for it to be less visible from street level. The building will feature a sixth level amenity deck highlighting ocean views. Ample bike parking will be provided, including E-bike parking, to encourage alternative transportation. A robust Transportation Demand Strategy program will be available.


The project is located in the beautiful neighbourhood of West Bay. Neighbourhood amenities include nearby parks, the West Bay marina, bus stops, and retail shops within a 5 minute walk.
