The annual CSC Construction tour in May was a big success!
We met for lunch at the Dublin Crossings Restaurant and then
on to explore the Marine Gateway Project. This is a new concept
of combining retail and residential in one location. The entire
project is built on a geothermal plant which allows buyers to
predict and then lock into energy prices for the next 30 years. In
cooperation with BC Hydro, tomorrow’s energy bill will be the
same as today. The entire project sold out in record time.
Several of the restaurant sites were selected after all residential
sites were sold and residents were able to participate in requesting
which restaurants to add. Sky trains arrive and depart to the
city regularly so the need for a vehicle is drastically reduced. The
concept is to be energy responsible and have a better quality of
life. Less glass and more thermally efficient panels may lead the
way to better building practices in BC.
Thank you to our hosts from Perkins & Will Architecture: Ryan
Bragg, Development Lead and Joshua Rudd, Intermediate Designer.
