The 122 unit Aberdeen Condominium complex is the second phase in the redevelopment of Aberdeen Centre, a unique mixed use project located along Cambie Road and Hazelbridge Way in Richmond, BC.
Conceived as an extension of the Centre, the building is eight storeys tall, comprised of 6 floors of condominiums, an outdoor/indoor amenity space on the second floor with a link directly to the shopping centre and a ground floor entertainment area. In addition to the retail, restaurants and markets in Aberdeen Centre, the site provides many attractions to its residents: convenient public transit access (including the future Aberdeen Station of the Canada Line); proximity to recreational trail systems; and expansive views to the north shore and south island.
Continuing the design of Aberdeen Centre, the condominiums will be clad with a window system that is synchronized with the Centre’s colourful and sinuous curtain wall system. Located in the flight path of Vancouver airport, the highly sophisticated triple glazed window system provides enhanced acoustic separation from aircraft noise. A street wall with an animated edge, a continuous canopy and wide planted boulevards consistent with the Centre are other elements being carried through. [Bing Thom Architects]
