Vision

Located in the heart of North Vancouver’s Maplewood neighbourhood, Maplewood Gardens is planned to be a vibrant residential community providing a spectrum of housing solutions to support the future growth of this Town Centre. This community of five buildings will offer much needed entry-level homes, affordable rental replacement homes, as well as market rental and down/right-sizing housing options. The new Maplewood Gardens will be well-serviced by the existing amenities at Northwoods Village and Stong's Market, plus its own commercial units fronting the area’s new highstreet – Seymour River Place

Project Overview

Housing

The community has been planned to ensure zero tenant displacement with a BC Housing partnership on a new, below-market housing program – a first on the North Shore.

Zero tenant displacement:

  • One-for-one replacement of current rental homes on-site with below-market homes for current residents
  • Project construction has been phased to ensure that replacement homes are built first, ensuring that current residents remain in place with a rent freeze (in place since 2015) until the new homes are complete

BC Housing partnership:

  • BC Housing is partnering with Darwin to bring a new provincial below-market rental program to the North Shore
  • The new below-market units will be managed by BC Housing – providing ample and appropriate resources to support tenants

Sustainability

Maplewood Gardens will exceed the District of North Vancouver’s sustainability requirements – proposing the most comprehensive sustainability package ever submitted for approval.

Fossil fuel free:

  • 100% clean energy sources for heating and cooling (electric)
  • No natural gas or fossil fuel energy sources used in homes

Over 50% reduction in overall carbon emissions:

  • Exceeding current District of North Vancouver sustainability requirements, cutting overall carbon emissions by over 50%

Mass timber construction (for midrise building):

  • First mass timber condominium building on the North Shore (12 storeys)
  • 25-30% reduction in carbon footprint and reduction in carbon emissions compared to traditional concrete construction

600% improvement in greenhouse gas intensity target:

  • Maplewood Gardens has set a GHGi Target of 0.8kg CO2 e/m2/yr compared to current District of North Vancouver policy of a maximum of 6kg CO2/ e/m2/yr

Transportation

Additional and alternative transit options have been prioritized to address traffic concerns.

  • Extension of the B-line rapid bus from the Phibbs Exchange to stop on site
  • 55% less parking than District of North Vancouver bylaw requirements
  • 100% EV charged parking stalls
  • 1,000 bike parking spaces
  • Addition of two bike paths – Old Dollarton Highway and Riverside Drive
  • Located within Maplewood Town Centre – with shops, schools, trails and amenities within walking distance
  • Project completion after Highway 1 improvements are complete – benefitting from improvement in traffic flow

Economic Opportunity

As a component of the Maplewood Town Centre (outlined in the District of North Vancouver OCP), Maplewood Gardens represents a natural next step for growth in the area, bringing support for local businesses and opportunities for employment.

  • The community includes 31,000 SF of commercial and Live/Work space
  • A new neighbourhood ‘high street’, bookended by two public plazas
  • A retail study of the area has demonstrated the need for more residential and commercial density to support existing retail at Northwoods Village
  • Northwoods Village has been a successful addition to the community, delivered by QuadReal – Maplewood Village will extend their investment in the area
