A townhome-style apartment development is in the works on Northeast 117th Avenue in east Vancouver.

The development, located at 420 N.E. 117th Ave., will have 26 apartments, according to planning documents sent to the City of Vancouver.

Though the property, a few blocks from the city’s Fircrest Park, is owned by Scheetz Family Trustees, it’s being developed by August Development.

Arthur Ryapolov, the president of August Development, said the development will feature luxury townhomes with nicer finishes, cabinets and vinyl flooring.

The apartments will be managed internally by August Development.

Ryapolov said his company sometimes works on projects in the farmhouse style and sometimes in the modern style.

“We try to have a unique design for each project,” he added.

The Northeast 117th Avenue project will likely have nice, warm tones and be designed in the modern farmhouse look, said Ryapolov.

The company is developing a number of projects around the region, including its 26th Street Townhouse development in east Vancouver. That project will have 12 townhomes with varying open floor plans, according to company’s website.

August Development also has worked on a six-lot development in east Vancouver with one- and two-story entry-level homes and an eight-lot development of luxury homes in Salmon Creek. The company has numerous townhome-style developments in Portland.

The two- or three-story units will predominantly have two-car garages, though a handful of internal units will have single-car garages.

There are also another 26 parking spots proposed for the development.

The 1.49-acre lot is currently home to grass, brush, trees and a single-family home that is set to be removed.

The property is zoned as a higher-density residential district.
