8 Thoughtfully Designed Townhomes in the Heart of Edgemont Village
SHOW YOUR SUPPORT
For more than three years Canfield Crescent Limited Partnership has been pursuing a development application for 3155/3175 Canfield Crescent in Edgemont Village. The site is located at the corner of Highlands and Woodbine and offers a gentle transition from two end-of-life single-family homes to four modern duplexes. The homes each have three bedrooms, two underground parking spots, a spacious rooftop deck, an outdoor dining space, Level 2 EV Charging and below grade storage. Construction will adhere to Step Code 3 of B.C.’s Building Code and traffic management will include secured off-site parking for trades and no road closures.
The project will also provide much-needed road upgrades including a one-way street for Canfield, new bike lanes and the addition of a sidewalk along Woodbine Avenue, which is part of the official route to Highland Elementary School. New pedestrian street lighting will replace aging overhead power lines, improving visibility and safety around the site. Public realm improvements include integrated seating on Woodbine and Highlands, vertical landscaping on all three frontages and an open landscaped courtyard.
3155/3175 Canfield Crescent is unanimously supported by residents on Canfield Crescent and the Edgemont Upper Capilano Community Association Executive (EUCCA). Please engage in your community’s future by completing a short survey and/or sending your personal comments to Mayor Mike Little and Council.
Your letter will be emailed to Mayor Mike Little, Councillor Jim Hansen, Councillor Lisa Muri, Councillor Betty Forbes, Councillor Meg Curren, Councillor Jordan Back, and Councillor Mathew Bond.

Dear Mayor Little and Councillors brought before Council in December 2019.
At the time Council voted to defer consideration of the development until after the targeted OCP review. While completion of public consultations on the targeted review has been delayed due to Covid-19, District Staff had previously developed a series of white papers touching on the issue of housing in the OCP review. The white paper on housing states that a goal of the OCP is to “encourage and enable a diverse mix of housing type to accommodate the lifestyles and needs of people at all stages of life”, that “to reach the OCP target, the pace of development of attached housing units will need to increase” and that “different segments of the population need different types of housing and these housing needs typically change over one’s lifetime.” I believe that these statements speak strongly for themselves without detracting from other housing needs in the District including the need for affordable and social housing options.
I support Council’s reconsideration of the Canfield townhome development and will vocalize my support at a future public hearing if one is granted.
