Natural.  Friendly.  Comfort.

A project for the City of Port Moody

This beautifully designed multi-family terraced building at 3000 Henry Street was created to mimic the surrounding landscape. With many elements for sustainable living, this project will benefit residents by providing:

  • Family-oriented homes (60% of units will be 2+ bedrooms)
  • Creative affordability options such as a rent-to-own program & lock-off units, as well as a locals first program
  • Large amenity areas such as open office/work station, fitness room and a theatre
  • The project is designed to be sensitive to the surrounding environmental context and incorporates numerous green features.
  • Design that mimics the hillside location

3000 Henry is pursued and envisioned by local Port Moody principals of Aultrust Financial who are passionate about creating a unique lifestyle for the residents through an artistically designed building that will be land mark for the City for generations to come. We care about the community and are incorporating programs to help streamline ownership for Port Moody residents through innovative solutions such as rent-to-own.

About 3000 Henry

The site’s transit-oriented location and proximity to community amenities (schools, parks, centers), and shops and services along St. Johns Street make it an optimal location for new multi-family homes in Moody Centre.

Community Benefits

Housing Diversity

3000 Henry will bring multi-family housing options to Moody Centre.
The proposal will include:

  • 173 apartment and ground-oriented homes;
  • Range of unit sizes including 110 family-oriented homes (64% of units will be 2+ bedrooms);
  • The project envisions contributing to the community through offering an affordability program which may consist of:
          • 17 Rent-to-own units; 
          • 6 Lock-off units for rental; 
          • Additional Developer Contribution of $200K to Affordably Housing Reserve Fund (AHRF). This fund will be over and above the existing $342,000 of AHRF as part of the CAC that the project has committed to and can be directed at the discretion of the council to:
              • Allocate the $542,000 towards building a custom-designed, 1600 SF Fully accessible unit within the building for and operated by non-profit housing provider Kinsight Community Society.. Kinsight’s partnership with developer and City means the unit will be provided in perpetuity allowing them to deliver services and provide suitable accommodation for developmentally delayed community members for many years to come.
                Or;
              • Allocate to other initiatives as per City’s other priorities.
  • Smaller, less expensive units may qualify for CMHC’s First-Time Home Buyer Incentive (i.e. studio and 1 bedroom units)

Layout Diversity

3000 Henry’s unique architecture of the building and the terracing, provides an opportunity to create a wide variety of different floor plan layouts. Diversity of units provides for suitable options across the spectrum of housing needs:

  • Families: Could enjoy larger units and townhouses with functional layouts suited for children and take advantage of mortgage helpers (lock-off studios).
  • First time Buyer: Can take advantage of the rent-to-own program to save up the down payment and get into the housing market.
  • Young Couples: Can benefit from available 1-bedroom to 1-bedroom + den and proximity to transit to conveniently commute using SkyTrain and car share.
  • Empty Nesters: Can appreciate large, extended and green balconies and other amenities such as rooftop gardens, physiotherapy room, extended trails, and the security of condominium living in their community.
  • Seniors: Can enjoy staying close to family and living independently through lock-off units and smaller 1 bedroom.
  • Disabled: Can enjoy an inclusive community with support from non-profit partners at Kinsight.

Environmental Preservation & Sustainability

3000 Henry is designed to be sensitive to the surrounding environmental context and incorporates numerous green features.
These features include:

  • Additional streamside setbacks along Elginhouse Creek and West Channel.
  • Compact building footprint (80% of the site is maintained in its natural state);
  • Extensive landscaping;
  • LEED Silver equivalency;
  • BC Step Code Tier 2; 
  • Electric vehicle charging capabilities in all parking stalls; and
  • Communal work stations for residents to foster a sense of community.

Compact Building Project

We value our green spaces in Port Moody, as a result, the project was designed to minimize the impact to the surrounding green areas. Take a look at the site map.

  • The development covers less than 20% site coverage
  • Preserving a large amount of the natural landscape (50% of the site left open as amenity landscape and tree management areas)
  • 2 acre park dedication to connect trails through the forested area above 3000 Henry Street  (~ 50% of the site)

Other Financial Contributions

The project will contribute to:

  • Over $1 million in Community Amenity Contributions (CAC)
  • $ 1,542,000  Development Cost Charges (DCC) for Translink
  • Up to $250,000 to the City’s Public Art Reserve Fund
  • $54,000 to Fire Smart wildland interface funding
  • $25,000 for trail rehabilitation around the site.
  • $200,000 additional contribution by the developer to be used at the discretion of the council (explained above)

 

Land Mark Building

Located in the “City of the Arts”, 3000 Henry will bring unique and diverse architecture to Port Moody. The design includes a terraced building form that mimics the hillside location and provides for views and green roofs.

Project History

3000 Henry has been envisioned for over 14 years. In 2007, an application for an OCP amendment and rezoning was submitted for Lots 17-20 Henry Street. Subsequently, the proposal received council approval and 3rd reading in June 2012. It was rescinded by Council in February 2019 to incorporate more environmental considerations into the project. What we present today is the same design vision shaped by the Port Moody community.
