IBI Group Architects has applied to build a 2.4-acre, 372-unit master-planned community at the northeast corner of Mountain Highway and Crown Street in North Vancouver.
The proposal was submitted on behalf of Fairborne CMCC Lynn Creek Limited Partnership, and would replace the existing Dykhof Nurseries building and five single-family homes at 420-460 Mountain Highway and 1510-1530. Surrounding properties include the DNV Fire Hall #2 to the north, single-family residences to the east, multi-family residential to the south, and mixed-use and industrial buildings to the west. It’s also located up the road from another recent residential proposal at 220 Mountain Highway.
If approved, the project would bring a mix of housing types including condos, rentals and affordable housing units across several buildings ranging from six to 29 storeys in height. The project proposes a total of 372 units consisting of 222 condos, 105 market rentals and 40 affordable housing units. There would also be approximately 2,992 square metres (32,266 square feet) of new commercial space, 744 bicycle parking spots and 473 vehicle parking spaces (364 for residents, 23 for visitors and 86 for commercial use).
The commercial spaces would be situated on the north portion of the site along with two, five-storey residential buildings above. These wood-framed structures would feature 105 condo suites and 45 affordable housing units. The 29-storey building would be situated on the south end closer to Crown Street and house 218 condos. The remaining homes would consist of townhouse units at the north and south ends with two units facing north towards a proposed plaza and two units facing south onto Crown Street.
The unit breakdown covers a range of needs and family types with one-, two- and three-bedroom layouts ranging in size from approximately 506 to 1,453 square feet.
Planned amenities include an expansive rooftop above the commercial space. The landscaped area would be accessed through two private indoor amenity rooms.
