‘Crest’ mass timber housing project breaks ground in North Vancouver
The Central Lonsdale area will officially become the home of the community’s first entirely mass timber development, creating 179 new homes for residents of North Vancouver. On October 17th at 1:00pm, members of the media were invited to 128 East 8th Avenue, North Vancouver, to witness the ground breaking of Adera Development Corporation latest project, Crest.
A pioneer in mass timber construction, Adera Development Corporation’s Crest project utilizes Luxury Wood in the form of cross laminated timber to create a building that benefits the community at large. Committed to developing sustainable communities, this project marks yet another mass timber development as part Adera’s vast portfolio of sustainable projects. “They’re fundamentally changing the way residential construction is being done” says Stephen Tolnai, VP of Sales & Marketing at Structurlam Products LP.
The use of Luxury Wood in the construction of Crest is a testament to Adera’s commitment to the North Shore, constructing communities that positively impact residents, and the environment as a whole. Luxury Wood utilizes cross laminated timber, creating engineered wood panels that offer significant superiority over other materials. More seismically resilient, fire resistant, and creating quieter and healthier homes, the benefits of this alternative building material are endless. “This development is literally the way of the future when it comes to residential construction. We are very excited to officially break ground and welcome Crest to the community of the North Shore” explained Eric Andreasen, VP Sales & Marketing at Adera.
The addition of Crest to the Central Lonsdale community shows the city’s commitment to growing the residential community, while the recent opening of the local Whole Foods store emphasises the focus on building healthy, sustainable communities.
