Innovative in Every Aspect


One of the unique challenges of this project related to the soil conditions of the Richmond area, which make underground parking cost-prohibitive. Because Rize believes above-ground parking structures are not aesthetically pleasing, it was our task to find innovative solutions. We worked with the project architect to mask the perimeter of the parkade with “Skyhome” condominiums, featuring attached garages with the convenience of a townhome many stories above street level. We also wanted to connect the vitality of Richmond’s shopping, dining and cultural activities in the north with the quiet bedroom communities in the south. So we brought in HBBH, the brain trust behind Granville Island, to recreate their mixed-use, urban village magic. Innovative in every aspect of function and design, we even designated covered dog walks for when it rains.
