A Vancouver home is being hailed as one of West Vancouver’s most beautiful, prominent residencies.
After 5 years of meticulous attention to detail, Park Lane is situated on the water’s edge of the Burrard Inlet in the Altamont neighbourhood and its environmental credentials are as string as its architecture.
Owned by Mossadiq Umedaly, an entrepreneur and pioneer of Canada’s renewable energy field, the 8,038 square foot home is carefully carved into a 25,000 square foot lot using materials such as concrete, Pennsylvania Bluestone, brick, zinc, and floor-to-ceiling glass windows.

Among its environmentally-focused features, the home has a geothermal system that provides low emission heating and cooling for the home while a special V-shaped alignment of the zinc roof and the collection of water from the driveways enable rainwater to be recirculated for landscaping.
“Park Lane represents a rare opportunity to own a masterpiece in sustainable architecture, design and construction,” states Christa Frosch, listing agent with Sotheby’s International Realty Canada. “The home is built to last and is a legacy that captures the vision of a prominent Canadian leader in renewable energy. I believe the buyer of this home will have a passion for fine, modern, functional and timeless architecture, the way the home honours the land and the natural beauty of the West Coast.”
