City Council Approval
Woodland Park has received the support of Port Moody City Council. The multi-phase rezoning accommodates the gradual growth of much-needed housing in Port Moody and will culminate in a vibrant, diverse, and sustainable master-planned community with an innovative mix of housing in 20 buildings across five distinct neighbourhoods. 75 percent of the ten-hectare site will remain green space, and 325 of the 2,000 new homes will be affordable rental units developed by BC Housing in partnership with EDGAR.
The Technology Enterprise Facility 4 features academic and administrative space for the University of British Columbia, digital tech office space for the university’s industry research partners, and shared penthouse amenity space. The LEED Gold-target building will facilitate research collaborations among academic and industry groups in cross-cutting and developing fields.
Passive House Certification
The Gastown Child Care Centre has become the first AOA project and the first City of Vancouver project to receive Passive House certification. Focused on net zero energy and low carbon fuel sources, the Gastown Child Care Centre demonstrates our commitment to environmental and social stewardship by reducing long-term energy consumption and providing healthy environments for our buildings’ occupants. The project is also targeting LEED Gold certification.
