The Freesia building received unanimous approval by both Vancouver's Urban Design Panel and the City of Vancouver's Development Permit Board on the first try. And little wonder, given that the Freesia team designed the building by imagining what it would be like to live there themselves.

Empathy for the homeowner brought about upgrades like the concrete walls in the bedrooms, or Structural Acoustic Barriers, to reduce noise and maintain privacy. It also played a role in creating desirable interiors with maximum usable space. And an elegant building façade surrounded by gracious greenery that compliments and completes the neighborhood.
