“The Marquis Grande”, Halifax Street, Burnaby BC
This development in NW Burnaby consists of a high-rise residential tower and townhouses with underground parking. It reflects a dramatic upgrade to an area fringing light industrial land uses and presents a greatly- enhanced frontage to the street. PD Group was responsible for hard and soft landscape design. There is a significant grade change across the site and this was used to advantage in creating a south-facing sheltered space for an outdoor pool surrounded by shade-giving trellis structures, patios and seating. The main vehicular entry to the site terminates with a large entry trellis leading to the tower’s main lobby. This trellised walk overlooks a vegetated slope that was stabilized with mainly native planting which screens adjoining development.
