James at False Creek Waterfront

Another cool new developmet to look for!

James -


New development n False Creek waterfront neighbourhood by Cressey, designed by Rafii Architects. James is located at W1st avenue and Crowe. Completion in 2012, maintenance fees from $174.31 - $491, deposit structure is 10% at signing, and 5% after 120 days + 5% after 2nd deposit within 120 days.


The vision for James was to create a building that acts as both landmark and landscape and a residence that not only compliments the False Creek community, enhances it. Concrete, glass and steel come together at James to create a striking residence with sweeping vertical lines, an abundance of outdoor space and exciting elevations where no two sides are alike.

Catering to the community, the townhomes arch away from the sidewalk to create a feeling of openness and inclusion while the glass encased corners of the main tower provide sightlines and a connection to people passing by.
The breezeway, entrance, and lobby are all open and inviting. Natural light spills in reflecting off the skybridge and water feature for added serenity and aesthetics as well as into the fully landscaped common areas and south mews.

The unmistakably contemporary feel of James also features ornamentations and other organic elements that pay homage to the history of this industrious waterfront False Creek community.
James at False Creek was built for people who have high standards for themselves and their homes. Life at James encompasses everything from innovative ways to save water and heat your home to the use of intelligent, low-impact building materials.

Green features

Living at James means you get all of the credit for an environmentally conscious residence just by moving in. James will follow a LEED silver standard. LEED stands for Leadership in Environmental Design which basically means that all along the way, James has been designed with a green theme in mind. This includes far more than just using Energy Star rated appliances, and your in-suite recycling centre, which James does.
It involves careful planning centered around six main categories: Developing sustainable sites which protect and restore open spaces, have close proximity to rapid transit, include charging stations in the parkade for electric vehicles and scooters, and offer Co-op cars for all residents to enjoy.

Water efficiency is carefully managed throughout the homes and also in using efficient irrigation and drought resistant landscaping which requires less water.
Energy and atmosphere we considered in this case by linking into the False Creek Neighbourhood Energy Utility which uses an economy of scales to heat all of the homes in this exciting new community while using less energy and therefore at a lower cost to each homeowner.
Materials and resources are sourced from regional suppliers and recycled materials where possible as well as recycling at minimum 50% of construction waste during the construction process.

Interior Features

The finer points complete the portrait of ones character. And, it is the small things, often overlooked by others, that make James unique. Of course, the prominent features and fixtures are immaculate, but look a little bit closer, behind the cabinets, in the closets, and into the corners and you'll see that the quality that defines James is more than skin deep.
