Paris Block / Paris Annex - Best Urban Infill - UDI Award of Excellence

We are proud to announce that two of our Gastown projects were recently recognized by the urban development industry.  Paris Block and Paris Annex received a 2012 Award For Excellence at the Urban Development Institute’s biennial awards. The projects won Best Urban Infill at a black tie gala held on October 26.

The influential awards recognized and celebrated the most outstanding of urban development projects from across B.C. and we are thrilled to be honoured.

Paris Annex, a new modern structure rounding out this community of 49 homes, is the contemporary sequel to the Salient Group’s 6-storey heritage building the Paris Block. The projects sit at the core of Gastown, an urban success story that was recently named the fourth most stylish neighbourhood in the world by Complex Magazine.

Winning in this competitive category motivates us to continue to create exceptional architecture and sustainable urban communities. Our latest project is Trapp + Holbrook, modern waterfront homes in the heart of rejuvenated downtown New Westminster.  Consistent with our past projects, Trapp + Holbrook promises to help strengthen New Westminster’s existing community while adding unique modern design that pays homage to the area’s history and diversity. With its high-growth potential and proximity to Skytrain, Trapp+Holbrook is currently the fastest-selling new home development in New Westminster.

Thanks to our peers at UDI for recognizing Paris Annex and Paris Block. For more information and a full list of winners, visit the UDI website.
