Boldwing Continuum was approached by Alpha Beta Developments to provide architectural, planning liaison and building envelope services for this townhouse and condominium development.
Located in the Maple Ridge downtown district, the RIO Grande was the first large multi-residential project of its size to regenerate the downtown area. Comprised of 106 one, two and three-bedroom units, the site was developed with four buildings, including 2 three-storey townhouse blocks (5 units each) fronting the street and 2 four-storey condominium buildings (45 units and 51 units) with a landscaped central drop-off and courtyard. This development featured a single-storey underground parking structure that included direct access to the townhouse units and two central elevator cores for the four-storey apartment units. Bicycle parking was also located at this level.
Exterior amenity areas included private rooftop terraces for the townhouse units and a central open landscaped courtyard for the residents, with passive sitting areas, children’s playground and spacious private ground-oriented patios and balconies. Indoor amenity spaces featured a community gathering area with kitchen as well as a guest suite.
With unit sizes ranging from 677 to 1,479 sq ft, the Rio Grande offers a truly well-diversified community living.
