JOYCE: WESTBANK’S MANIFESTO FOR THE JOYCE-COLLINGWOOD NEIGHBOURHOOD
Introducing JOYCE, Westbank’s latest endeavour in Collingwood—one of Vancouver’s most established neighbourhoods. The history of Joyce-Collingwood area has been established since the late 1890s, and today the neighbourhood is one of the most multicultural communities within the city and home to over 50,500 residents with families making up for over half of the population. Known as the neighbourhood of parks and schools, right along the BC Parkway citywide cycling network, and adjacent to the Joyce-Collingwood SkyTrain Station, JOYCE is at the centre of a dynamic, tight-knit community. The neighbourhood features several lakes such as Trout Lake, Deer Lake, and Burnaby Lake, and the 222-acre Central Park as well as an abundance of many other smaller community parks. With 6 elementary schools, over 20 preschools and a dozen high schools within a 10km radio, JOYCE brings new housing to the area for more families, students, and residents of all kinds to enjoy the abundance of parks, schools, amenities while adding new vitality to the community.
One of the most important characteristics of this area is its attractiveness to families. To help foster family-living in the neighbourhood, Westbank has ensured that 65% of the homes at JOYCE are two bedrooms or larger, one of the highest percentages of family housing offered in a new development in generations. Included in the JOYCE Fitness and JOYCE Rooftop amenities will be a multifunctional space that will serve as a library, study room and music room for residents. With incredible views from Queen Elizabeth Park to the North Shore mountains and downtown to the airport, there is little doubt this space will become a focal point for the residences of JOYCE.
With access to everywhere, via the Joyce-Collingwood SkyTrain and public transportation network or by vehicle, this neighbourhood is a great place to live, dine, study, and work. Coming from JOYCE, Metropolis at Metrotown is only 3 minutes away, and many destinations are within reach: 9 minutes to BC Place/Chinatown, 12 minutes to downtown Vancouver, 17 minutes to Oakridge Mall, 32 minutes to YVR Airport, 36 minutes to Aberdeen and Richmond Centre, 43 minutes to UBC, and 45 minutes to SFU.
Closing, with a statement from Westbank:
“Westbank has built a practice around long-term commitments to artistry, sustainability and city-building. As we continue to evolve, we’ve found that these commitments are driving us to create work that exemplifies, and above all, embodies, beauty. Our definition of beauty encompasses aesthetics and design but equally, it includes the value of our projects as social and cultural contributions. Now, with each project, whether it be Vancouver House, the Pacific Rim, Alberni by Kengo Kuma, the redevelopment of Oakridge, or with our projects in Toronto, Seattle and Tokyo, our starting point is always: ‘how can we make a neighbourhood more beautiful?’
JOYCE is a direct manifestation of our commitment to creating beautiful projects that contribute social and cultural value to the communities in which we build. We have challenged ourselves to create something that will both honour the neighbourhood’s heritage and cultures while fostering future growth. We hope in the end you will see a level of effort and a degree of artistry reflected in our work that is befitting one of Vancouver’s first, historic neighbourhoods.”
