This project is a mixed-use commercial-residential development in the heart of Moodyville. The land assembly includes the north side of 400-block East 3rd Street, plus 341 St David’s Avenue across the lane.
On East 3rd Street we propose a West Building and an East Building, separated by a public breezeway. The West Building is four storeys, and the East Building is five storeys.
341 St Davids Avenue is across the lane and north of the East Building. We propose a North Building in this location. The north building will commercial units fronting the lane, live/work units fronting St Davids Avenue, with townhouse units fronting 4th Street. The North Building is four storeys at the lane, and tapers down to two storeys at 4th Street.
We propose a special commercial lane and public gathering place on the east portion of the lane. The North and East Buildings will have small commercial units fronting the lane. We propose to close the east portion of the lane to vehicular traffic, and transform this space into a pedestrian and bicycle-friendly, car-free neighbourhood commercial destination, intended for outdoor patio space, cafes and other local commercial uses. We propose festive weather protection over the lane to further promote its use as an outdoor gathering place.
The site features a significant downward slope. This means that the elevation at the grade of 3rd Street is below average grade, and technically underground. We are referring to this level as “Ground Level”. The elevation of the lane is one storey higher than East 3rd Street. We refer to the lane elevation as “First Level” in our drawings. The Official Community Plan counts the number of permitted storeys from the lane, or the high side of the site.
The proposal features several segments:
|Affordable Home Ownership Program – below-market units available with potential support from BC Housing|
|Architecture and form of the building|
|Materials and theme of the building|
|The public pedestrian breezeway, connecting E 3rd to the lane|
|Number of the parking spaces|

|Public Art Opportunities|
|Undergrounding Hydro lines in the lane|
|Economic Benefits: local employment|
