This rental tower is a new development application about to be posted to the City of Vancouver’s website. It’s for the corner of Robson and Nicola; (we’re showing the Robson façade). At present there are two small buildings with only 12 rental units: GWL Advisers are proposing a 21 storey mixed-use building with retail on the street and 127 rental units above, with 42 two or three bedroom units.
This IBI Group designed tower is planned across Nicola Street from the two towers that would replace the Empire Landmark hotel – although those are proposed as market rather than rental units.
If there are no major design issues raised, the project will be considered at a July Development Permit Board meeting.
