Vancouver Forest is a residential development designed to resemble Vancouver. The unique 900-unit development is located about 30 minutes from Beijing’s international airport. The site features west-side Vancouver-style housing, lots of natural landscaping, lakes and hills. The master plan for the area was designed to maximize the preservation of thousands trees.
In addition to the Kryton BC connection the project was designed by Vancouver based architects, Ekistics and features BC wood in the framing.
Krystol Internal Membrane (KIM) admixture was used to waterproof the below grade areas of the homes. The team also used Kryton’s Krystol Waterstop System for joints to ensure a fully tanked basement. The homes are roughly 4,300 square feet and feature natural elements including wood, bricks and rocks. There are four styles of traditional North American homes and they sell for more than $1.9 million.
The project is being built in phases with an estimated completion date in 2015.
