Radius – W4th and Fir

Back in June 2012 we suggested Ledingham McAllister were obviously quietly confident of getting a development permit for their next project at West 4th Avenue at Fir Street. We said that because they were running advance notices in the Condo Guide and on their website,  and were preleasing the retail space, with a render of the building – all before a permit had been submitted.

When one was submitted it was promptly rejected by the Urban Design Panel. In 2013 a revised design was supported by the panel. Designed by Rositch Hemphill, the model shows a much simpler contemporary design than the earlier version. As built it looks very like the render, with an added surprise that the tenant is Tesla, with a large showroom for their 100% electric vehicles.
