The new Lansdowne will include 3.9 million square feet of residential development, including approximately 4,000 homes in a wide range of types and styles – from street-level townhouses and courtyard skyhomes to terraced flats and tower apartments. The towers will be distributed to capture light and optimize view corridors, and there will be market rental units and affordable homes that meet Richmond’s Affordable Housing Plan. With strong support for families – e.g., including day care and seniors’ facilities – final population may reach approximately 10,000 people, all within an eight-minute walk of rapid transit, and less than five minutes from some of the city’s most desirable park, recreation, retail and cultural spaces. This compact, transit-oriented neighbourhood – conveniently connected to the rest of downtown and west to the Fraser River – is destined to be one of Metro Vancouver’s most desirable and sustainable residential neighbourhoods.
