23 townhomes proposed for corner of Oak Street and 52nd Avenue
A land assembly currently with three single-family homes at the northeast corner of the intersection of Oak Street and West 52nd Avenue could be redeveloped into four three-storey townhouse buildings.
Falling under the city’s Cambie Corridor Plan, Yamamoto Architecture’s development application to the City of Vancouver outlines plans to construct 23 townhouse units at 6750-6770 Oak Street.
“The buildings are of a contemporary design, combining simple volumes emphasized by a palette of white brick, dark hardie-siding, dark vertical standing seam siding, and expanses of glass and guardrails,” reads the application.
“The top floor is clad with a combination of vertical standing seam siding and horizontal siding with a smooth texture that is meant to contrast the brick below. The two-storey brick projections and large windows create a rhythm that identifies the individual townhouses and provide a smaller scale that relates to the pedestrian realm and to the scale of the internal courtyard.”
There are also private patios for the townhouses within the courtyard and along Oak Street and the laneway.
A single level of underground parking contains 30 vehicle parking stalls and 69 bike parking spaces.
The development’s total floor area is 29,000 sq. ft., creating a floor space ratio density of 1.19 times the size of the 24,300-sq-ft lot.
