Here’s another Robson Street tower proposal. Unlike yesterday’s at 1500 Robson, this is a proposed rezoning, and it’s at the eastern end of the street where the Catholic Charities building currently sits (once the Northern Electric Company Building, built in 1928 and 1947). The existing Catholic Charities Men’s Hostel will be relocated to a proposed location on Seymour Street, (so we can anticipate a Development Permit for that).
The proposal is by GBL Architects for Amacon, and includes a 6-storey hotel on the Beatty Street end, and lower floors, the restored heritage building and a 290 foot high residential tower over the 86 room hotel. There would be 131 residential units, with 71 2-bed and 18 3-bed.
