End of Year Construction Update - 1441 St. Georges
Work has been full-steam ahead at our purpose-built rental development at 1441 St. Georges Avenue in North Vancouver. Once complete, this two-tower development will provide 256 secured rental units – including 14 suites dedicated to YWCA housing of female-led single parent households – to the bustling Central Lonsdale neighbourhood.
Demolition of the western portion of the existing podium has been completed, allowing excavation and shoring to proceed for the new tower. Ongoing work on the existing tower includes abatement, interior wall layouts and upgraded window frame prep.
The project also saw 29 expressions of interest for its public art contribution. The selection committee has begun the process of short-listing applicants to proceed with formal submissions. Once completed, the finished public art piece will take its place in the mid-block pedestrian walkway between the renovated and newly constructed towers.
We look forward to sharing more exciting news in 2019 as the towers continue to take shape.
