This development provides commercial and residential space with both market and affordable housing options.

The site provides 237 residential units in three multi-story residential buildings ranging in size from five to 12 stories; two-level townhomes with street-level entries; at-grade commercial space; indoor and outdoor residential amenity space; and two levels of parking with a landscaped podium

By combining the appropriate number of residential units, small and light-use retail spaces, and ample green space, Ciccozzi Architecture was able to successfully have the zoning of the site changed from light industrial and warehousing. This accomplishment reflects our understanding of the City of Richmond and their vision of the City Centre, which is to create compact, engaging and vibrant urban villages that offer high quality amenities and are sustainable (pedestrian and transit-friendly being a major focus.) In this way, the design of Tempo appealed to the City’s wish to add to the existing urban fabric of the community.
