Origin At Longwood
Provision of programming input, design collaboration with local BC architect of record, Rafii Architect Inc. of Vancouver, to represent the interests of the Ontario-based operating partner. This two phase development consists of 110 units of assisted living in a 4 storey wing. An adjacent 3 storey wing above a single level of underground parking contains a 32 suite ground floor ADL unit and Independent Living rental suites on the upper storeys for an overall total of 176 suites.
This 4.5 acre, heavily forested site required planning committee variances for building height and parking and the building was carefully sited to maximize retention of many mature trees. Significant consultation with local ratepayers groups and municipal planning staff was undertaken.
