WEST QUEENS HOUSING , SENIOR CARE600 West Queens Road, North Vancouver, BC
Catalyst Community Developments Society and The Home and Health Care Society of BC are developing a non-market affordable housing, together with a senior’s respite centre on the Delbrook Lands located at 600 W Queens Rd.
The project fits into the transitional neighbourhood context and presents a significant social benefit to the community. The proposed development responds to the findings of the DNV 2016 community engagement process, by creating a multi-unit inter-generational development that will provide eighty below market rental apartment homes and a senior’s respite centre which features space for a day program and eighteen overnight rooms.
The development is 5 storeys building with the Respite Care Centre on the main floor over a single level of underground parking. The architectural character is West Coast Contemporary inspired that fits comfortably within the Delbrook neighborhood. Large roof overhangs with strong roof lines and Cedar-look soffits add warmth and create a vertical visual break to reduce the building height. While box feature frames at the mid-levels provide a horizontal relationship to the neighbouring property with the added benefits of solar shading. The development offers programmed landscaped outdoor spaces including residential amenity and secured outdoor space in accordance with the operator’s requirements.
