Yesterday Westbank and architects Leckie Studio Architecture + Design unveiled their concept for a 14-storey rental apartment tower at the corner of West Broadway and Alma.

The site at 3701 West Broadway is currently home to a one-storey strip mall which includes the popular True Confections Café.

According to real estate site UrbanYVR, the new building will be clad in phenolic panels with vertical fins, to provide solar shading. The innovative material is highly durable and used at skateparks due to its durability and long lifespan.

The rental building will have 154 units, 31 of which will be geared towards moderate incomes under the Moderate Income Rental Housing Pilot Program. Four commercial units are proposed, wrapping around the corner of West Broadway and Alma Street.
