801 Main Street

Here’s another rezoning related to Northeast False Creek. Designed by Perkins + Will for the City of Vancouver, it’s a massing study for the western of the two city blocks that will be freed up for development by the removal of the Dunsmuir and Georgia viaducts. The render shows the view from the Quebec Street side of the block.

Three structures are proposed, with a 22 storey building in the middle of the site and lower buildings facing Main. The Quebec side shown here has an eleven storey building with two lower wings at right angles. The main floors throughout would have retail uses, and a large food store is illustrated as a possible tenant, facing Pacific Boulevard. A plaza is shown running from Union to Pacific, roughly mid block. There are no details of unit counts, or tenures, but over the two City-owned blocks it is intended that two to three hundred affordable housing units should be created, as well as market housing.
