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.
The 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.
