A purpose-designed boutique apartment building that expands residential occupancy and sustainably complements the Oak Bay community.

The Clive Residences

Blending sustainability within an established community

The Clive is a purpose-designed 17 unit apartment building to replace an 8 unit apartment building in Oak Bay Village. Cascadia Architects designed the Clive to achieve a number of programmatic, urban design, and sustainability targets while remaining respectful of the scale and historic mixed commercial/residential typology of the Village.

Sustainable Upgrades

The Clive is a carefully considered, LEED certified project which incorporates a series of sustainable and green features into its design. Located on a previously developed infill lot, the project is situated within walking and cycling distance to many amenities. Through the inclusion of at-grade, weather-protected bicycle storage and car share memberships for all units, its design encourages residents to minimize their dependence on the automobile.

This redevelopment responds directly to all the key criteria that organizations such as Canada Green Building Council (LEED) and SmartGrowth BC identify as necessary to create sustainable, healthy communities for future generations.
