160 East 6th Street, North Vancouver, BC
The 17-storey high-rise stands on the south easterly edge of Victoria Park in the Lonsdale area of North Vancouver. The building has 93 homes, in which 52 units are stratified and 41 units are rental housing.
The new tower came at the expense of an existing 12-unit rental building from 1954. In order to create a lot large enough to allow the density proposed for the 93 units, the developer bought the adjacent boulevard from the city at a cost of $1.8 million.
Atlas provided fall protection anchors to facilitate planter maintenance at each level of the building. The anchors were cast into the underside of the slab inside the elevator lobbies, so that when it comes time to do maintenance on the planters the workers will be in fall arrest before they reach the area of work. Atlas also provided anchors to facilitate exterior building maintenance and window washing.
