UBC Exchange Residence
The new $75 million Exchange Residence at UBC’s Point Grey campus in Vancouver is an integrated student residence and diesel bus transit exchange located at the Southwest corner of Wesbrook Mall and Student Union Boulevard.
The 280,000 sq.ft. LEED Gold targeted student residence will provide approximately 630 beds for upper year students in suite style configuration (micro units, studios, 1, 2, 3 and 4 bedroom units with kitchen). The project comprises four towers, ranging in height from 5 to 14 storeys, constructed over a 2-storey (equivalent) podium. The building will incorporate some larger studios and 1-bedroom units that will generate higher rents and greater revenue and some small (145 sq.ft.) micro units to assist in addressing affordability issues for some students.
Amenities will include lobby, front desk, house lounge, meeting/study rooms, bike storage, fitness/games room, music practice rooms and laundry.
This new residential development at UBC is scheduled to complete in September 2019.
