Granville at 70th

Gallery

Pocket parks and lush groves are woven throughout the Granville at 70th development, which is punctuated by expansive rooftop gardens. This intensive landscaping is a living symbol of the project’s commitment to environmental sustainability. Targeting LEED gold equivalent, the development will employ rainwater collectors and efficient mechanical systems.

Granville at 70th is comprised of a 19-storey residential tower with a mix of rental units and market condominiums, a 14-storey residential tower, and a 7-storey podium with rental housing and townhouses at street level. A new Safeway replaces the current aging store and large parking lot, which was a void in the urban fabric. The façade of the new Safeway creates a strong streetwall, while paying homage to its 1960s predecessor. The gull-wing shape of the new store canopy is a modern interpretation of the previous Safeway’s classic design.

The development brings responsible density to a transit-oriented area while creating an intimate neighbourhood scale. The townhouses, which are situated across the street from single-family dwellings, are set back to allow for planted front yards.
