Mayor appreciates 12-storey structure’s proximity to naval base, graving dock and Seaspan

Except that's a pretty distant 3rd or 4th place consideration when people choose where to live.   97%* of dockyard workers live in a household with car ownership.

Its a modular build.  'Cubes' will be built with full elec/plumbing on the mainland, shipped over and craned into place.  Construction is expected to take half the time of traditional concrete build.  Its also Passive House certified... this is shaping up to be a pretty exciting build actually.

Exciting perhaps, aesthetically pleasing...well, time will tell. It's fortunate that this project has zero competition in the visual appeal department anywhere in close proximity.

Agreed, the location is less than stellar.  Also, Passive House builds are focused on energy efficiency, so don't expect expansive glazing walls... looks not too bad based on the rendering.  Either way, glad to see someone is thinking outside of the curtain wall/concrete box.

Interested to see what pricing on these units will be.

This rendering certainly doesn't help.

Ah, so that's why it has a shipping containeresque feel to it.

At 12 storeys, this will be the second-highest tall-timber building in BC (after the 18-storey Brock Commons building at UBC).
