Completed in 2021, the Gastown Child Care Centre is an innovative response to a concept proposed by the City of Vancouver to develop childcare centres atop under-utilized parkades in the downtown core. To support Vancouver’s Greenest City goals, the project is designed to Passive House and LEED Gold standards, with a focus on net zero energy and low carbon fuel sources. The centre’s rooftop solar panel system is one of the green design features.
