A new condominium project at the base of Grouse Mountain in North Vancouver has been acclaimed the “greenest stand-alone, residential building in Canada,” according to its developer.

Representatives for Streamline Properties Inc. say The Brook, a collection of ultra-modern, luxury condos, is on target for LEED Platinum certification.

It features high-efficiency geothermal technology to heat and cool the building, solar thermal hot water, heat recovery ventilation systems that constantly circulate fresh air throughout each unit, water recycling and low-flow plumbing fixtures.

These reduce consumption of greenhouse gases by 87 per cent, municipal water by 83 per cent, and energy by 70 per cent.

Paul Warwick, construction manager, said The Brook features the best in sustainable building technology.

“The attention to detail is unlike any project I have been involved with in my 30 years of experience,” he added.

The development will be ready for occupancy this fall and suites start at $569,000.

Delivering urban living in a suburban setting, residences have open floor plans, nine-foot floor-to-ceiling glass window walls, charcoal grey cream polished concrete floors and cut oak cabinetry.

The kitchen is state-of-the-art and the spa-like master ensuites have extra-deep soaker tubs, separate walk-in showers and Hans Grohe fixtures.
