Taking its name from the not yet created Neon Street where the Granville Loops will one day be removed, here’s Cressey’s STIR rental building now approved for the west side of Granville Street, across from The Rolston. Designed by IBI/HB the all-rental building will have 89 units in a 10-storey building. It got support from the Urban Design Panel at their March 21st meeting and the rezoning was approved by Council in July 2012.
What makes the building interesting, long term, is that the back is curved to follow the current site (where the off-ramp loops curve round). Once the loops are memoved there will be a small triangular open space created and just a memory of where the loops used to be.
