The Residences at WEST spans a full city block — along West 2nd Avenue, from Manitoba Street to Columbia Street. This project consists of three 17-storey residential towers connected at the main level with retail space. It has three levels of underground parking, and two podium structures with six levels of residential units. One of the podium structures has a penthouse level daycare with a large roof top outdoor play area. The architecture of the project featured a number of concrete ‘frames’ on each of the building elevations. RJC developed a cracking/reveal detail to help ensure the aesthetic intent as well as the long term durability of the structure would both be maintained for the life of the project.
