Previously called 1401 Comox, controversy has dogged this West End tower since it was first proposed back in October 2009. After its third redesign, it was approved after a long public hearing. Designed by Henriquez Partners for Westbank Peterson, the tower will be 100% rental under the now ended STIR program designed to encourage developers to build more rental residential units.
The tower was slimmed down and sculpted to reduce shadow impacts, and is now 200 feet tall, similar to other towers in the area. This new shot of the model is on the developer’s website.
