A long-stagnant site a few blocks northeast of the Brewery District is resuming construction activity for a six-storey condominium development called 'The Vermillion.' The project at 10611 116 Street NW by Red Leaf Developments and designed by Brian Allsopp launched construction in 2011 with the completion of its one-storey underground parkade, but the building never rose above ground.

A building permit issued for the project on March 2 makes reference to the 63 units to be added on the property. The residential development will include one-, two- and three-bedroom options — two-storey lofts with rooftop decks are also available. Most interior areas will boast ten-foot ceiling heights, and each unit will include stainless steel appliances, engineered hardwood floors and quartz countertops in the kitchen and bathroom.

The design has been updated since the initial proposal was unveiled some ten years ago. While the massing has generally remained the same, most of the angled edges of the original design have been removed in favour of a simpler roofline. The arched parapet of the inset centre facade has also been flattened.
