Latitude Living Development

Front Yard. Redefined.


8 modern residences neighbouring Trout Lake Park & Community Centre. 

A stroll away from the front gates of Commercial Drive’s culture.

Adjacent to the SkyTrain and Expo Line transit nexus.

The perfect balance of nature, recreation, leisure and convenience.


The Neighbourhood

Commercial Drive is a vibrant neighbourhood offering an eclectic mix of cultural flavours and experiences.  Its restaurants, markets and family-run shops encompass a multitude of culinary adventures, be they grassroots or gourmet.  From handmade pasta to Serbian garlic sausage, craft beer to artisan coffee, izakaya to Cuban fare, The Drive is host to a plethora of international tastes.  And a rainbow of lively street festivals showcases the best of local art, music and theatre.  Stroll over to the East Vancouver Farmer’s Market and shop for the freshest local produce, then work off the calories at the Community Centre or run the trails around Trout Lake before catching a play or open-air concert—all in your new front yard.
