1296 West Broadway

1296-w-broadwayThe Denny’s on West Broadway, with its surface parking lot, has been an obvious contender for redevelopment for years. Here’s a rezoning to build a 16-storey mixed-use building with retail at grade and 153 rental units above.

As illustrated so far, the design seems very retrained, with only dark and light brick cladding. The architects are the very experienced IBI Group working for Jameson Development Corp, so it’s possible it will either evolve into something a little more interesting, or that we’re misreading the render. There are 41 2-bed and 15 3-bed units, so it meets the ‘family-friendly’ policies of the City of Vancouver for purpose-built rental projects.

There’s 30,000 square feet of retail and some office as well on an 18,700 square foot site, so the retail must be on two floors.
