Coquitlam proposal

29-storey Maillardville tower inspired by logs stored on Fraser River

November 26, 2019 By Peter Meiszner



A development permit application has been presented to Coquitlam city council for a 29-storey tower in the Maillardville neighbourhood.

The development, designed by Wilson Chang Architect for M.L Emporio Properties Ltd., will include 179 market residential units (122 market condominiums, 51 market rental and six below-market rental units).

The developer is proposing to partner with BC Housing as the operator and leaseholder for the below-market rental units, which will be offered at a minimum of 25% below-market rates.

There will be 9,524 sq ft. of commercial space in the podium, and 276 underground parking stalls.

The tower’s design draws inspiration from Maillardville’s economic and cultural heritage with metal panels of varying wood tones layered over a glass facade, evoking the patterns and colours of log storage on the nearby Fraser River.

Yeah, I'm not buying the exterior design inspiration. Sounds to me like an empty marketing hook. If they're really going for a "logs floating in the Fraser River" look, they need to cover substantially more of the building in those offset/angled/varied-coloured metal panels.

I wouldn't say ugly but it does seem not in harmony with the outline and appearance of the tower.

After years of delay, construction begins in downtown parking lot on Vancouver's newest park


Now..




Later



Quote:
Construction is scheduled to begin next month on an elaborate Downtown Vancouver park that includes a public plaza, cafe, raised walkways and a price tag that ballooned to $14 million from its original estimate of $8 million.

The Vancouver park board, which oversaw the design of the park that’s being built on a parking lot at Smithe and Richards streets, is expected to vote on the awarding of the contract to the construction company at its Monday meeting, the final step before construction can begin.

The new park will be divided into three terraces and will include a public plaza with a water feature, small cafe, playground, a community table for programs, seating terraces, plants and overhead “sky-frames” to provide lighting and on which to install public art.

In 2011, it was estimated to cost $8 million, an amount that was to be covered by the community amenity contributions (CACs) paid by the developer of the Telus Gardens condo complex during the rezoning process. CACs are routinely agreed to by developers during rezoning, usually in exchange for increased density.

The Telus Gardens’ developer in 2011 agreed to pay $8 million, which was expected to cover the purchase of the land, demolition of the existing parking lot, park development and construction costs, according to the park board staff report recommending the granting of the tendered contract to Smith Bros. and Wilson....

More render

Imagined as three unique experiences, the park will include a multi-use public plaza with a seasonal water feature, a small cafe at the corner of Smithe and Richards, a playground area, a community table to host various programming, seating terraces for sun lounging, and a variety of plantings. A network of "sky-frames" will also provide shelter, overhead lighting, and support art installations and banners.

I actually kind of like the vaginal building. At least up close. From a distance you can only really see the shape rather than the finer details.

Architects are notorious for inventing fanciful stories to sell their creations, but on the other hand, why would someone stick a bunch of metal panels in varying shares of brown to part of the side of a contemporary highrise that features otherwise unrelated design cues? I mean, it doesn't look good. So there must be some other reason for doing it. When I first saw the rendering I thought, "Oh cool! Another one of those timber highrises, this one with wood paneling on the sides... Both innovative and eco-friendly!" But then when I found out that not only wasn't it a wood building, but that even the siding that resembles wood is actually just metal made to mimic it...

Draw upon elements of the setting as design inspiration, not as a tacky superficial-decoration gimmick.
