Meccanica Condo Developement By Cressey | Southeast False Creek
Cressey Developments, the developers of James, is getting ready to launch another condominium development in Southeast False Creek, Meccanica. This will be the third development along Quebec street, following the recent launch of Lido by Bosa, and last year’s launch of the iconic Central by Onni.
As they said in a recent email:
On this same site at First and Quebec, a company named Intermeccanica lovingly custom-created Porsche speedsters and roadsters. For over 30 years, their powerful design aesthetic ruled this spot. Soon, that same love of design will live on in Meccanica – in bold, automotive-inspired homes that embrace a refined, industrial style just like their namesake.
The site, the old Buster’s towing location between West 1st and West 2nd on the east side of Quebec Street, appears to be a little wider on Quebec than the Lido site, but the form factor of the building will be similar. They described it like this:
Rafii Architects, the architect team behind Donovan and James, have crafted Meccanica to include sophisticated architectural details rarely seen in this city: things like a classic exterior of galvanized metal and glass, and the grill-like look of its western facade. Inside, the unexpected continues. These are big impact homes, raw but refined. Starting with floors of polished concrete and 7-foot wide industrial metal door leading to your bedroom, to the super high gloss kitchen cabinets in Porsche inspired colours and air conditioning, there’s more glass, more metal detailing and more ceiling height – we’re talking over 9-feet! Not to mention, more Cressey deep thinking on how to make uberfunctional floorplans with a better overall flow, roomier feel and famous Cressey kitchen.
Here is a floor plan and a list of finishes.
