95 West Hastings Street

95-w-hastings

Here’s another long-anticipated Downtown Eastside project. Holborn have owned the site across Abbott Street from Woodwards for many years. Now they’ve submitted a rezoning application to build a 10-storey mixed-use building with 132 units of secured market rental housing over commercial space on the ground floor. The proposed building is shown on the left of the render.

The architect is Gair Williamson, who has designed a number of other projects in the area. The design respects the Victory Square design guidelines, and the east 7 storey segment of the Hastings Street elevation aligns with the Paris Block 2 lots over, while the west 8 storey segment aligns with the historic Woodward’s façade across Abbott Street. Levels 8-10 of the east segment are set back 8 feet from the street, while levels 9 and 10 of the west segment are recessed one foot from the lower façade.
