Ormidale Block – West Hastings Street

OrmidaleThe Ormidale Block has been around since 1900. Originally designed by G W Grant, it has seen some minor architectural indignities over the years as the neighbourhood fell from its bustling past. Revitalisation is rapidly improving the business viability of this stretch of West Hastings (which also has Woodwards and the Flack Block). Now it’s the Ormidale Block’s turn and new owners the Century Group plan a total restoration of the facade with a brand new 5 storey office-over-retail building behind, designed by B+H Architects. The retail will be on the ground and basement floors.
