Yuangheng Holdings is proposing to build an 8-storey mixed-used office, retail, and residential development on top of SkyTrain Canada Line’s King Edward Station entrance building on 4099 Cambie Street in Vancouver.
Not much is currently known about this project. However, the development proposal follows InTransitBC and Translink’s original plans of developing the air space above King Edward Station’s entrance building and the large vacant site adjacent to it.
The simple and merely functional 2009-completed station entrance building design serves this future development purpose, with expectations that future developers will better integrate and improve the architectural aesthetic qualities of the station’s building house. Currently, the station building looks quite incomplete.
This project is just one of several mid-rise developments proposed for the area. It is a part of the City of Vancouver’s vision of densifying the Cambie Corridor in advent of SkyTrain Canada Line’s arrival.
