177 West Pender Street

The City of Vancouver have owned this vacant lot on West Pender Street since 2014 when they became owners as part of the Millennium Properties bankruptcy.

Now there’s a proposal to rezone it for non-market housing, designed by DYS for Ventana who will build the project on behalf of the Vancouver Affordable Housing Agency.

There will be 90 1-bed units, most of them 250 sq ft micro units, in a 10-storey building, with a setback after the seventh floor. The design is intended to compliment the heritage building that surround the site. There’s some continuity here: Davidson and Yuen (the D and Y in DYS) designed Pendera, a 1989 non-market housing building two buildings to the east of this site.
