This project was first here in October 2011 and is now completing construction. Designed by W T Leung, it’s a 10-storey 51 unit building replacing Summer’s Auto Body repair shop. The architect has designed a lot of the buildings in this neighbourhood, including both office and mixed use buildings along West Broadway (the most recently completed before this was Wesley, featured elsewhere on this blog).
Although he’s designed a lot of buildings, some of the biggest schemes the W T Leung office has designed are just showing up. There’s a 12 storey building on Kingsway, and also a 17 storey building proposed for Westbank Projects at 601 Main Street which will replace an abandoned Casino.
This building is tall for the neighbourhood, and while it isn’t very different from the render that was posted on site, it’s more of a background building than some of the more complex designs that will soon be completed elsewhere in the Main & Cambie areas.
