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.
The project is unanimously supported by all five adjacent residents on Canfield Crescent and the Edgemont Upper Capilano Community Association Executive (EUCCA). Please show your support below by completing a short survey and sending an automated letter of support 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.

Subject: Support for I4PG Development’s Edgemont Village Project at Canfield
Dear Mayor Little and Councillors,
I live ________________.
I am writing in support of the proposed 8-unit townhome development at 3155/3175 Canfield Crescent.
The development was 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 suspended until further notice due to Covid-19, District Staff developed a series of white papers on the areas of 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 advancing the Canfield townhome development in the approval process and in particular to a public hearing without further delay because:
- it will contribute to creating housing diversity for older and indeed all current “Edgemont” residents seeking a change in housing type within their neighborhood, and for new Edgemont Village residents as well,
- it will add to the District’s attached housing supply,
- as new housing it will help the District achieve its goal of developing an energy efficient community,
- it will support local businesses in Edgemont Village,
- it will contribute more than $500,000 in fees and charges to the District, and more than that amount in local street, sidewalk, lighting and other public improvements,
- it is consistent with the Edgemont Village Centre: Plan & Design Guidelines,
- it has the support of the District’s Advisory Design Panel,
- it is a logical use and plan for a pie shaped property at the edge of the commercial centre of Edgemont Village,
- the developer has provided assurances to avoid traffic congestion or disruptions during the construction process, and
- having already been in the approval process for over 3 years I would not want the viability of the development jeopardized by any further delay.
