Three 'sculpted' towers coming to the corner of Cambie and 57th Avenue
Another phase of Onni Group’s Pearson Dogwood redevelopment on Vancouver’s Cambie Corridor has advanced to the development permit stage — and it is the most significant phase of the 25-acre project to date.
Plans for 500 West 57th Avenue — the southwest corner of the intersection of Cambie Street and West 57th Avenue — entail three mixed-use towers, with two towers reaching 28 storeys (up to 286 ft), and one shorter tower with 24 storeys.
There will be a total of 741 homes, including 488 market ownership units, 223 secured non-market rental units, and 30 supportive units.
The ownership unit mix is five studio units, 228 one-bedroom units, 231 two-bedroom units, and 24 three-bedroom units, while the rental unit mix is 67 studio units, 46 one-bedroom units, 66 two-bedroom units, and 44 three-bedroom units.
On the ground level, the application calls for 85,000 sq. ft. of retail and restaurant space.
As this corner portion of the redevelopment acts as a gateway into Pearson Dogwood from Cambie Street and is the location of the entrance for the potential additional future Canada Line station at 57th Avenue, it is being given an architectural and public realm treatment that recognizes this.
The design, by IBI Group, calls for sculpted tower corners and a southwest diagonal pedestrian-only mall that provides a connection between the transit plaza at the intersection corner to the rest of the redevelopment and the new on-site public park space and green spaces.
Retail and restaurants will line the diagonal mall cutting through the corner parcel, helping activate it. The rooftop of the commercial podium will be used as outdoor amenity spaces for residential tenants.
Close to 1,100 vehicle parking stalls are slated for five underground levels.
This phase accounts for 720,000 sq. ft. of the total 3.2 million sq. ft. of floor area on the entire redevelopment, which includes dozens of buildings, close to 3,000 homes of varying types such as market ownership and affordable housing, and over 200,000 sq. ft. of health-related facilities operated by Vancouver Coastal Health.
An additional Canada Line station at 57th Avenue would certainly be an asset for the immense density being added to the Pearson Dogwood and adjacent Langara Gardens redevelopment, but the financial and technical feasibility of constructing an underground station on the existing subway line is in doubt.
