Located in West Vancouver’s Dundrave neighbourhood, Bellevue by Cressey is poised to be one of the most exclusive residential opportunities in Greater Vancouver. With only two to three homes per level, each of the 35 luxurious private residences offers endless ocean views, expansive outdoor terraces and direct access to West Vancouver’s seawall: this exclusive tower is set to be a Dundarave icon.
The building takes inspiration from the modernist buildings found in the area, with their strong rectilinear geometry and large balconies as defining features; but is also influenced by its west coast environment with the use of strong overhang at roof level, wood soffits and doors and a blurring of boundaries between inside and out through the use of large windows and wide (up to 15’) opening glass walls; and the introduction of a water feature that runs through the building cascading through a series of waterfalls and channels. Sustainability has also been considered with the large balconies and louvres shading the south, and a narrowing of many of the windows.
An artfully designed mansions in the sky, each offering its own soul stirring ocean views.
The project takes the simple form of four intersecting rectangles, rising above a base of three townhomes engaging with the natural slope of the site. The lowest two rectangles run east – west along Marine way, forming a 2-9 storey streetwall along this busy road. The remaining two rectangles run north-south slimming the tower and reducing its visual impact to viewers up the slope in the residential neighbourhoods north of the site. The groves of trees at the East and West are being retained and the tower has been positioned to be parallel with Marine Drive, slightly west of center providing opportunity to give the entire eastern half of the site to landscaping and a porte cochere for convenient passenger drop off and loading. The parking is all underground, taking advantage of the natural slope of the site to provide private garages and family rooms in areas that emerge from the ground.
Durable high quality materials will be used throughout the project with predominantly stone and glass cladding, A dark stone will be used for landscape elements and a light stone for tower and townhome cladding. Large opening glass walls are featured in the living/dining rooms and Master bedrooms with terraces on units at mass change points and roof.

CONTEXT AND SITE DESIGN
· By positioning the building on the western side of the site next to the large existing grove of trees and skewing it on axis with Marine drive, we reduce its visual impact on neighbours to the north, in fact views on streets further north of the site will for the most part see only existing trees.
· The streetscape is being enhanced by the addition of sidewalks along Bellevue Ave and 23rd street, and a rich landscape treatment throughout the project with new street trees and other planting.
· Ground level open space linked to green spaces on site
· The building is highly sculptural with a variety of masses from a 9 storey streetwall on marine to a 19 storey linear tower and a 2 storey amenity building.
· High quality stone cladding will be used throughout project
· Detailing will be in keeping with the character of building and landscape with high level of sophistication
