City Centre projects for 2010

As the first major wave of City Centre developments finish up, including CityPoint, Agenda & Element, and Quattro Phase 1, we take a look at what developments are working their way through the City and are scheduled to start construction in the near future.

While there are a number of great projects being planned, including hotels, residential towers, and urban office towers, many are unlikely to start anytime soon, and could potentially stall or fall through, as such utopian developments tend to do. So, for this post, we focus on the most realistic developments likely to begin this year. Be sure to click on for the full post.

Urban Village Phase 2 (on the left): Phase 1 consisted of the two four storey apartment buildings to the south – Agenda and Element. Phase 2 consists of the 38-storey Ultra tower, which is currently being sold by developer WestStone. The tower will have a total of 358 units and also include 16 standalone townhomes at the base.

SFU Residences (on the right): SFU is currently completing design on Phase 1 of this project, which will include a 15-storey, 108 unit student housing tower. The tower will include a small retail component. SFU hopes to eventually built a second phase, which conceptually would be a market housing tower.

This project, located at the northwest edge of the City Centre, includes two four-storey apartment buildings, containing a total of 131 units.

This project, at 101 Ave and 137A St, features a 4 storey apartment building with 50 units.

This four storey apartment will locate across from the Quattro project and contain 82 units.

This four storey apartment building, located on the western edge of the City Centre, will feature 90 units and include a heritage plaza at the corner of 132 St and Old Yale Road.

Cherington Place, a senior’s living complex, is currently undergoing renovations. Cherington plans to build a two storey, 68 bed extension to the site, creating a campus of care on the northern edge of City Centre. The new units will either be assisted living or senior’s supportive housing.

Laurel Place, a recently-opened 215 bed residential senior’s care facility, is already planning an extension to the south. The planned 4 storey building will add an additional 144 beds to the complex.

    Great summary. Keep up the great work!

    They should just tear down Cherington Place and build a modern senior's facility. I hate how it the building has its back turned to 112 Avenue.

    Speaking of engaging the street, I hope the design for the new four story apartments interact with the street instead of having large setbacks.

    Any updates on Quattro or the property west of East Whalley Ring Road that is supposedly owned by the same developer?

  2. Not counting the seniors care, that appears to be about a thousand new units of housing downtown. That's pretty rapid densification, since much of what is being built on either has no homes on it or are single family houses.

    looks like infiniti towers are starting up again, I drove by there last week and there were a lot of work trucks there and workers. I spoke to someone two weeks ago who also confirmed that they had been hired to work on the project starting in january 2010
