LOCAL AREA INFORMATION
Olympic Village - Sustainability
Energy Efficient - The Olympic Village's heat and hot water needs are met by a neighborhood Energy Utility system, which uses heat captured from the sanitary sewer's main line.
Stormwater Management & Green Roofs - Stormwater management initiatives include green roofs, bio-swales, permeable pavers, infiltration galleries, rainwater collection/reuse and surface drainage elements (minimal pipes). Green roofs are targeted for a minimum of 50 per cent of the total building footprint, providing natural insulation, stormwater management, habitat and opportunities for rooftop gardening.
Green Buildings - The City of Vancouver is targeting Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) “Gold” green building certification for all new buildings and the site’s heritage Salt Building. For the venue’s community centre, LEED “Platinum” is targeted.
Accessible Design - Units will showcase universal design elements, such as wider doorways, hallways and stairs that are easily adapted for complete accessibility.
Community Benefits - The village's developers, Millennium Properties, and a local non-profit society provided 100 jobs, $750,000 in training and $15 million in procurement for inner-city residents and businesses.
Sustainable Transport - The waterfront redevelopment comprises the newest section of the Seaside Greenway/Bikeway, part of Vancouver’s 22-kilometer Seawall. Streets have been designed for pedestrians and bicycles first. Car co-op vehicles and electric hookups are accommodated in underground parking areas.
