Brock Commons Phase 1

Brock Commons Phase 1 is a 18 storey building utilizing advanced wood-based building systems, physically demonstrating the applicability of wood in the tall-building market. It provides student housing for upper year and graduate students with a capacity of 404 beds comprised of 272 studios and 33 four-bedroom configurations, each with integrated kitchen facilities. The building site is adjacent to the North Parkade within the Brock Commons student housing “hub” site designated in the UBC Vancouver Campus Plan. The project represents the first phase of Brock Commons and provides student housing and ground-floor lounge and study space, with a future phase providing other community amenities and academic spaces as well as additional student housing.
