Situated at the north end of the Iron Workers’ Memorial Bridge, this project sets the standard of development for the emerging Lower Lynn community on the North Shore. The Seylynn Village Master Plan comprises three high-rise residential towers and podium buildings constructed in 4 phases. The project is expressive of the unique site characteristics, the industrial heritage of the neighbourhood and the north shore context. The towers are designed and composed to maximize views and minimize shadowing within the development. Architecturally, each building is unique while a unified aesthetic maintains a cohesive bond within these family of buildings.
The DA team worked closely with District staff in developing a unique vision for the area. The was much emphasis placed on the creation of a rich, pedestrian friendly public realm. Seylynn Village Master Plan also provides a central amenity hub building containing an indoor swimming pool, exercise rooms, club facilities and a child care centre. A rental housing component is also included to encourage a diverse community to evolve.
