Located on the edge of Vancouver's downtown, 15 West provides 120 new affordable apartments in a 5-story building. Units are income restricted to 60% of the median income and include studios, one-, two-, and three-bedroom units. At the ground floor, facing Columbia Street, two live/work units provide an active storefront.
Like the exterior, the interiors have a modern "metropolitan" look; common spaces include polished concrete floors, simple wall finishes, and playful lighting arrangements.
The project was designed to meet the Evergreen Sustainability Standards v2.2 and is partially funded through the Washington Housing Finance Commission bond financing.
