Construction on a European-inspired rental housing development on West King Edward Avenue is underway.
The development was designed by SHAPE Architecture and is being developed by Wescorp Developments.
It includes 36 secured market rental units ranging from studios to three bedrooms and is located half a block off West King Edward and Oak Street.
The rental apartments and townhouses have access to open-air courtyards and roof gardens providing abundant natural light and usable outdoor spaces.
“Inspired by European courtyard housing, the project creates a social and cultural hub which invites interaction, community engagement, visibility and a sense of security,” reads the design rationale from SHAPE Architecture. “Density and massing respond to an adjacent ‘high-end’ single-family residential zone to the west and a mixed-use commercial zoning to the east.”
The development is targeting LEED Gold.
