ROYAL AVENUE TOWNHOUSES (Parkside)
Vancouver, BC, 1986-87
"One who plants a roof top garden, plants happiness."
~ Rob Sieniuc
Parkview Terrace, a 35 unit townhouse and commercial development, is located in Vancouver's Fairview Slopes neighbourhood. The units are sited to maximize the views of downtown, the North Shore mountains and False Creek.
A landscaped roof amenity area, one of Vancouver's early green roof installations, is incorporated into the development—responding to a nearby land bridge spanning over the adjacent street. All units have exterior entries.
