Architectural firm WT Leung has submitted a rezoning application to the City of Richmond for a large new mixed-use development in Richmond’s Brighouse Village.

The 109,969-square-foot site at Park Road and Buswell Street is currently home to the Park Village strip mall and other low-density commercial buildings.

The proposal is for a mixed-use development including two 15- to 16-storey towers with stepped levels that narrow as the building rises, and one office tower with a podium containing commercial and retail spaces facing the street at ground level.

The buildings would include:

• 318 market residential units;

• 21 affordable rental units (nine one-bedroom, seven two-bedroom and five three-bedroom units);

• 58,605 square feet of office space;

• 43,791 square feet of retail and restaurant space;

• a north-south public walkway connecting the buildings;

• a 4,000-square-foot public plaza on the south side of the development; and

• 618 parking stalls.

The site as designated as Urban Core T6, which allows for much higher density than is currently on the site, and is therefore a prime lot for rezoning under the City of Richmond’s City Centre Area Plan.
