A recent proposal to the City of Vancouver aims to add colourful, modern townhouses to a site at the northwest corner of Columbia Street and 63rd Avenue in Marpole (a site that was formerly three single-family homes.
The redevelopment application of 333 West 63rd Avenue was put forth by Fougere Architects and describes the architectural style as “a modern interpretation of classic row houses” with brick cladding and colourful accents.
The plan will see two four-storey staked buildings with 27 units in total, ranging from studio units to three bedrooms. There will also be one level of underground parking accessible by the rear lane.
The units will range in size from 481 sq ft to 1,900 sq ft with the most spacious units, the three bedrooms (17 in total), situated on the top floor with private rooftop decks. There will also be one studio unit, six one bedrooms, three two bedrooms.
The total square footage of the site will be 32,600 sq ft which is a 1.88 FSR.
While this location in Marpole is primarily single-family dwellings, the City of Vancouver Cambie Corridor Plan is attempting to add density to the community with four story residential units.
