The Clive is a three-storey LEED certified rental apartment building in the Oak Bay Village neighbourhood of Victoria. The 17-unit building achieves a number of programmatic, urban design, and sustainability targets while it respects the scale and historic mixed commercial/residential typology of the Village. Improvement and beautification of the pedestrian and street frontage on Oak Bay Avenue results in a more appropriate transition from the commercial centre of the Village to the residential periphery, and the replacement of a dated, inaccessible apartment building with a new energy efficient and accessible LEED certified building.
Located on a previously developed infill lot, the project is situated within walking and cycling distance to many amenities. Features include at grade, weather protected bicycle storage and car share memberships for all units, on-site storm water management in a native landscape bioswale and exterior shading devices on the southern facade mitigate solar gains and augment the energy efficiency of the building.
