Aurmon Development (developers of Raffles on Robson, R&R) are proposing a new 12 storey condo building at West 2nd Ave. and Wylie St. in the Olympic Village/South East False Creek neighbourhood.
The lot at 371 West 2nd Ave., across from the Maynards development & Petsmart, is one of last remaining vacant lots on the north side of the street and is currently home to a community garden.
The new building, which will be called Olympic Station, is designed by DYS architecture.
It will be a mix of unit sizes (five studios, 78 one bedrooms, 37 two bedrooms and 12 three bedrooms) plus a two three bedroom penthouses.
Olympic Station will feature dark solar glass on its exterior, random blue glass accent panels and a green wall on the adjacent building. There will be an amenity deck for residents on the 7th floor.
Interestingly, there is space reserved on the corner of the property for an “urban bike pad” — maybe Vancouver’s long-awaited bike share program will happen after all?
No date yet on when a public open house will be scheduled.
