BC SPCA – making animal welfare and community needs the priority

About this project

We are thrilled to be working with such an outstanding organization on such an exciting project that delivers a win-win-win for animal welfare, community needs and City services. This conceptual design proposes a new 48,000 sq.ft. state-of-the-art animal hospital, animal centre, education centre and Provincial offices for the BC SPCA, and a 100,000 sq.ft. 200+ unit student residence to help meet the demands for housing for students at Vancouver Community College, The Centre for Digital Media and Emily Carr University. The goal for the student residence is to meet Passive House and potentially make this a timber tower. We look forward to the completion of the City’s upcoming neighbourhood policy process and public input to move this exciting project forward.
