The Heights is a six-storey mixed-use building in the rapidly evolving Vancouver Heights neighbourhood. The 5,600 square metre building includes a basement parking garage, street level retail and five storeys of apartments above, with a total of 85 suites. The parking and retail space are constructed in concrete, while the five storeys of residential accommodation are of wood-frame construction.
In addition to being the most economical construction material for this size and type of building, wood lends itself to Passive House construction. On completion, The Heights will be the largest Passive House certified building in Canada and will demonstrate the adaptability of traditional wood-frame construction to a new generation of high performance buildings.
