SHANNON MEWS - Kerrisdale Vancouver Westside Development by Wall Financial Corporation and Perkins & Will Architects
Shannon Mews Vancouver Condo Project APPROVED by City Council
In July 2011, Vancouver City Council approved the rezoning application for a new Westside Vancouver real estate development located at Granville Street and 57 th Avenue. The proposed Shannon Mews Vancouver condo project was put forth by Wall Financial Corporation, a well known and well established developer in this growing city. The architectural team will include Perkins + Will Architects, another established local company with lots of awards in environmental design and multi-family housing. The next step is for Wall Financial Corporation to submit a permit application for the Westside Vancouver Shannon Mews condo project which could start as early as the first quarter of 2012. After 3 long days of hearings and community feedback, Vancouver City Council passed the rezoning of the Shannon Mews Vancouver Westside site on July 29 th , 2011 at 2am. According to the minutes, there were a total of one hundred and seventy nine registered speakers at the decision meeting for Shannon Mews Vancouver condos by Wall Financial Corporation. Of the 179 speakers, 83 did not speak while 7 were in support. 85 people were opposed to the largest Westside Vancouver Kerrisdale real estate development in the history of the neighbourhood while four were classified as 'other'. Of the Vancouver City Council members, 4 were opposed to the rezoning of the Vancouver Shannon Mews Kerrisdale condo site that included George Wong of Vision Vancouver, Suzanne Anton, the NPA Councillor and Ellen Woodsworth and David Cadman of COPE Vancouver. From the beginning, many Kerrisdale residents were opposed to this massive Westside Vancouver Shannon Mews real estate development due to its negative impact on the community objectives, noise, traffic and high density. The original Wall Financial Corporation proposal for Shannon Mews Vancouver was for condominium high-rise towers up to 14 storeys. Through several attempts, the proposal for rezoning of Shannon Mews Kerrisdale Vancouver condo project was scaled back to boutique low and mid-rise towers between 2 and 9 levels.
A Quick Overview of the New Kerrisdale Vancouver Shannon Mews Condos by Wall Financial
The rezoning application that has been approved by Vancouver City Council will be followed quickly with the building permit application by Wall Financial Corporation. It is expected that the final permit application proposal will include the development of 735 residences at Shannon Mews Vancouver Westside condo project. The breakdown will possibly include 202 Kerrisdale Shannon Mews rental suites in addition to 533 Shannon Mews Vancouver condo market suites for sale next year. According to Wall Financial, the market suites will range from studio floorplans all the way to 2 and 3 bedroom condominiums. There will also be a select number of Kerrisdale Vancouver Shannon Mews townhomes for sale. Many of the historic sites and buildings may be kept and revitalized and this will include the original Shannon Mews Coach House, Gate House, Italianate Gardens and the Beaux-Arts Mansion. In addition to this breakdown, it is expected that 19 market Shannon Mews condos for sale in Westside Vancouver real estate market will be situated in the heritage building on site while the remaining market suites and rental units will be in 5 new buildings. The Shannon Estates Vancouver project site is over 10 acres, and represents the largest master planned community on Westside Vancouver real estate market ever. With the addition of these 735 homes on the Kerrisdale Vancouver Shannon Estates property, it is expected that the density of the area will more than quadruple, following the city's recommendations to densify and produce more multi family housing projects to provide affordability to first time buyers and families.
In addition, the Shannon Mews sustainable features are impressive and will include such things as LEED Gold Standards in building construction and finishes. Also, the built green Vancouver Shannon Mews condos will have renewable energy system, green mobility, sustainable site design, rainwater management, self irrigation, solid waste diversion and housing mix/affordability in a walkable neighbourhood.
