Danish-Inspired Modernity
Arne by MONDEVO is a boutique collection of twenty Mount Pleasant townhomes with a clean, warm expression that balances architectural modernity with flexible layouts. Its floor space ratio, open courtyard layout, outdoor stroller lockers, and proximity to a park with a playground make this development ideal for young families. Arne’s first two storeys are a very crisp cube in white brick veneer, with form and material emphasizing the individuality of each dwelling. The upper storey is a more subtle, contrasting expression of metal faux wood siding that recedes from view, giving the impression of a smaller external facing.

A Foundation of International Style
Although not on Vancouver’s heritage register, the hulking Canada Post processing plant at 349 West Georgia Street is considered one of the finest architectural examples of the International Style of Modernism in Vancouver. Nevertheless, because of the imposing 1950s industrial facade it presents, this may explain why the surrounding area seems lacking in the social vitality that you find along Granville Street, Denman, or on Robson. Now, the proposed redevelopment of this site into a mixed use, multiple-tower structure offering work and living spaces for 4,000 people, is likely to significantly alter the character of the neighbourhood. With the opening of Telus Garden and the planned relocation of the Vancouver Art Gallery to Larwill Park at Cambie and Georgia, we expect tremendous change to come to Downtown East.

For those who prefer the convenience of downtown urban living over suburban commuting, only a select group of people can claim to enjoy benefits equal to or better than the future residents of 349 West Georgia. With three large retail spaces available, in addition to numerous smaller spaces, there’s a good chance one of the anchor tenants will be a supermarket and another a department store. Two restaurants are expected on the ground floor, but countless more options await in Gastown, along Granville, or in Yaletown. Being in walking distance from Rogers Arena and BC Place Stadium means you can catch the game without having to tolerate the mayhem of public transit afterwards. And if you want to escape the concrete jungle for more open spaces, simply ride your bike along the Dunsmuir bike lane to Stanley Park or Beatty Street to the False Creek seawall, to name just two options.
