Main Street & 2nd Avenue

Main & 2nd model

Here’s a new rezoning proposed under the Mount Pleasant Plan, across the street from South East False Creek. Designed by Francl Architecture it would replace the building Maynards moved into a few years ago with 253 units, 30 of them non-market rental to be owned by the city. Here’s the view of the model along Main Street, (with 3rd Avenue on the left) and below is the render.

Main & 2nd render 2The building is designed as 6 storeys at 3rd avenue rising to 12 storeys, and has 13,000 sq ft of retail on the main floor. In addition there are artist production spaces (studios – but not residential space). In the centre of the project there’s a plaza that would be public space – possibly an opportunity for a restaurant to have outdoor seating.

The Urban Design Panel have reviewed it and given it a thumb’s up – so it will probably next head to a Public Hearing.
