Western Securities has been considering a new proposal for Calgary's Lower Mount Royal district. Recent renderings show a six storey multifamily project currently dubbed Lynbrooke Manor, be located near the corner of Royal Avenue and 8th Street SW. Designed by Hindle Architects, the building's design is modern and simplistic. The general shape of the building having a boxy like massing and large windows which give somewhat of an older warehouse/loft type look while its simplicity gives it a stylish, elegant look
The proposal is slightly larger than the typical multifamily project in Lower Mount Royal, most of which are 3 and 4 storey walkups, however given it is only a couple of floors taller than most, it still fits into its surroundings.
At the moment, the project is in its early stages and there is a fair distance to go before we see Lynbrooke Manor start construction. A development permit has been submitted to the City of Calgary, and it will go through the usual permit process. In the meantime SkyriseCalgary will continue to follow the progress of this project.
