Finally, here’s a map to orient your view (block lettering corresponds to blocks captioned in the renderings):
Renderings for Wall Financial Corporation’s redevelopment of Shannon Estate (perhaps better known as Shannon Mews for the rentals on the site) were recently released with the developer’s rezoning application. The renderings are heavy on the leafy green landscaping, and a bit short on building detail, but they give a taste of the possible future for this large property at the edge of Kerrisdale, Oakridge and Marpole.
We’ve got the renderings, along with some detail about the planned development, after the jump…
Wall Financial is planning to have 891 total residential units in the new development, with 200 rental units and 691 units for sale. The site, bordered by Granville to the east, Adera to the West and 57th St. to the south, is a bit of an anomaly in the city with its sprawling gardens surrounded by low rise buildings.
As you might expect, they’re planning to restore the site’s beaux-arts mansion and formal italianate garden. And they hope to add two larger towers (one 13 and one 14 storeys), along with multiple mid-rise buildings dotting the property.
Busby Perkins + Will, the project’s architects, cite the Arbutus Walk (Kitsilano) and Barclays Square (West End) areas as precedents. We understand the comparison, although the locations make for very different living. Both Kits and the West End are far more walkable and urban than Shannon Estate.
That said, the renderings look rather civilized – with almost a campus feel. We’d prefer a bit more detail on the actual buildings, but that may come during the development application process – and we’ll be monitoring and reporting on any changes for the project
