A mixed -use development providing 45 boutique homes and commercial spaces at Ground level. The proposed building engages both the 14th Street and the lane with a central connecting spine flanked by residential units. The massing strategy is to have an articulated but continuous street facade on 14th Street with a robust commercial base supporting a modern, floating two-storey building element that acts as a distinct volumetric component on the front façade. The top floor is set back and the extending roof overhangs create a visual termination for the building. The ground floor is also set back to extend the public realm at grade and the variety of materials and articulated coloured glass used help create a vibrant and pedestrian friendly street.
