Four-storey residential building proposed near SkyTrain's Marine Drive Station

Rositch Hemphill Architects has submitted a development application to build a new four-storey market apartment building about a five-minute walk from SkyTrain’s Marine Drive Station.

The proposal is for 455 West 64th Avenue — a land assembly of four single-family homes, built between 1952 and 1994, just east of Cambie Street.

This site is framed by West 64th Avenue to the south and laneways on the other three sides. All four lots were acquired for the redevelopment in September 2017.

There will be 43 homes, and residents will have access to a green rooftop amenity space.

“A classically contemporary building with white brick in running common bond pattern is used for the majority of the cladding at the building face,” reads the architect’s design rationale.

“The architecture follows traditional sensibilities but is also interjected with clean modern moves at the facades and the fourth floor. Window pattern styles compliment and are fitting to the classically contemporary elements.”

A total of 54 vehicle parking stalls will be located underground.

If approved, the redevelopment will have a total floor area of 39,164 sq. ft., creating a floor space ratio density of two times the size of its 19,582-sq-ft lot.
