Home hunters looking to set up residence in rugged North Vancouver will want to note that construction is set to commence this month on Intracorp’s Orizon on Third.

As the project’s name suggests, this 104-home, five-storey condo project will stand on a site at 3rd Street and St. Georges Avenue in North Vancouver, just blocks away from the ocean and Lonsdale Quay. This central location has earned Orizon on Third a “Very Walkable”  distinction from Walk Score, the official authority on neighbourhood walkability.

Orizon on Third residents will be within minutes of a number of great restaurants, cafés, shops and markets. Those needing to venture further afield can head to the nearby transit hubs for the bus and SeaBus, which will put you in downtown Vancouver within minutes.

Of course, the walkability of Orizon on Third isn’t the development’s only benefit to its residents’ health and the environment. The entire project is being constructed to LEED Silver standards, with everything from water-efficient plumbing to energy-efficient lighting and appliances.

One of Orizon on Third’s most interesting landscaping features will be the bioswale, a gently sloped structure that will guide water flow while removing silt from the runoff rainwater. Bioswales have a composting feature by design and, with the addition of vegetation, they assist breakdown by trapping of pollutants in the swale. Bioswales are seen as an effective way to collect rainwater and naturally filter it back into the ground.

You don’t want to wait to check out this sought-after project. Visit the Orizon on Third sales centre at 21 Lonsdale in North Vancouver.
