HCPM Project

About the Project

HCPM developed a transit supported 5 storey, 34 unit apartment building located in the city of Cambridge. Of the 34 units, 30 are one- bedroom units, 550 square feet in size. The remaining 4 units are two-bedrooms of approximately 800 square feet.

The apartment dwellings have open concept living room/kitchen. The building was constructed using energy efficient Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF).

The site’s designation in the City’ Official Plan was changed from Low-Medium Residential to High-Density Residential. The site also required a re-zoning to change its designation to Residential Multiple 1 (RM1) to permit the construction of this new apartment building. A number of site specific amendments to the RM1 designation were also required to reduce the number of parking spaces required, landscaped open space and the interior side yard setback.
