Kerrisdale Heritage Reawakens for Today
West Boulevard & West 53rd is the next upcoming project from Formwerks Boutique Properties in their Heritage Collection, which honours the architectural history of Vancouver’s West Side. Ten elegant homes will arise on a large property across from the Arbutus Greenway in Kerrisdale. The development is based on the revitalization of the historic Twiss Residence, to which will be added 3- and 4-bedroom infill duplexes and a coach house.
Built in 1912, the Twiss Residence is significant for its Craftsman style, its siting on one of the few remaining estate-like properties associated with the early residential development of Point Grey, and its long association with its original owner and builder, William James Twiss. Twiss was a prominent businessman, property developer, military man, Point Grey School Board Trustee, and Alderman for the City of Vancouver.
Experience the convenience of walking to daily essentials in less than five minutes, or enjoy the spectacular Arbutus Greenway, Vancouver’s new park system connecting Granville Island in False Creek all the way to Marpole and the Fraser River. Be part of a Vancouver legacy at West Boulevard & West 53rd.
