1575 West Georgia Street

1575 W Georgia 1Some parts of the Downtown peninsula have very few development opportunities remaining. Here’s an example of a tight site on the north side of the street where West Pender meets West Georgia, close to Bayshore and Coal Harbour. It’s been a modest 3-storey office building for over 40 years, and the new tower proposes to retain commercial space on the lower floors (actually, at four floors there’s a slight increase in office as well as retail space).

The remaining 22 floors are condos, with 184 units and the project is designed by Henriquez Partners for Bosa Properties. The design shows a much more complicated façade than the simple boxes of a few years ago. The next step will be a review by the Urban Design Panel – it seems more likely that the rezoning hearing will be considered by a new Council, as the election is only a few months away.
