Project Description

Spire Landing is one of Canada’s largest Passive House multi-unit residential developments.  It is situated in the City of Vancouver’s South Side where Fraser Street and East 57th Avenue intersect. This high-performing six-storey rental building will consist of 95 rental units and features numerous amenities including shared common rooms, roof-top terrace, and bike spaces.

Designed by Cornerstone Architecture, the building combines increased insulation values with high quality air barrier materials and detailing.  The mechanical system consists of multiple heat recovery ventilation (HRV) systems, each unit providing multiple suites with fresh air. Windows and doors are triple glazed, passive house certified and south facing openings have exterior sun shading to assist with solar heat gain.

Spire Landing is strategically located in the playful Sunset neighborhood where residents can enjoy abundant amenities steps away from home including parks, ethnic restaurants, cafes, supermarkets, pharmacies, salons and other retail shops.

Fueled by curiosity, accountability, and compassion to create what matters, Spire is proud to support Vancouver in becoming the world’s greenest city by 2020 as part of the city’s bold urban sustainability initiative.
