An Exciting Concept in Sustainable Urban Living, 278 Condos Ideal for Family Living Coming to Downtown South
After an extensive period of public consultations, a major redesign, and fruitful negotiations with the City of Vancouver, 8X on the Park by Brenhill Developments now has the green light to develop this outstanding site. In the New Yaletown sub-area of Downtown South adjacent to Emery Barnes Park. The goal for this 35-storey mixed-use building is to achieve a LEED Gold rating through the use of thermal glazing, extensive sun shading, and geo-exchange heat pumps and high-efficiency fan coil units in each home. Close proximity to abundant dining, shopping, and entertainment options, as well as public transit corridors, reduce the need for day-to-day car use, while ample bicycle storage encourages use of the city’s popular cycling routes.

GBL Architects have created an inspiring “three-building” design that responds separately to each of its unique site contexts – the Yaletown skyline, the urban grid and public realm, and Emery Barnes Park. The overall building composition integrates these three elements to present a much more layered and rich massing. Also unusual for a Downtown condo, 1111 Richards offers two- and three-bedroom homes, a Montessori school, and a daycare to encourage families to locate here. Far from being in an urban jungle, you’ll delight in being so close to the False Creek seawall, main library, BC Place, Rogers Arena, Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, theatres, parks, and the Roundhouse Community Centre.
