Vinson House Cottages Approved by West Vancouver Council May 16, 2016

I am pleased to report that West Vancouver Council has voted in favour of the proposal from Trasolini Chetner and Michael Geller to conserve the historic Vinson House at 1425 Gordon Avenue, Ambleside in return for approval to add three new homes on the property: a Garden Suite below; a Laneway Cottage and a Garden Cottage.
All being well, construction will begin this summer, and be completed in fall 2017. At this time we do not know if we'll pre-sell the homes, or wait until they are finished.

Thanks to everyone involved, but especially to Stephen Mikicich and Lisa Berg in the planning department at the District of West Vancouver; Formwerks Architectural, Donald Luxton & Associates Heritage Consultants, Damon Oriente, Landscape Architect, and others working on the plans; and neighbours and community representatives who supported the project at Council, and wrote letters of support, and others who privately offered advice and support.

Thanks also to the Mayor and Council who have shown an act of faith in approving the project. We will do our best not to disappoint you!
