This residential development is part of Vancouver's Homelessness Initiative.

It includes 147 units of housing; a six-storey building with a greened roof deck; and an 11-storey tower.

It is designed to target LEED® Gold certification.

With durability in mind, this building was designed with a 100 year life expectancy for materials and building structures.

A building durability plan was created and detailed to address quality of design and installation of building components, as well as lay out future maintenance requirements to ensure a long-lasting building.

Finally, the building envelope was commissioned to ensure the achievement of durability, energy and performance integrity.
