Harwood and Thurlow Streets

Bosa BlueSky held a pre-rezoning open house to introduce a pair of linked rezoned tower proposals. The two sites are on either side of Harwood Street’s 1000 block at Thurlow Street. While each project in this part of the West End is expected to provide 25% of the floorspace as non-market housing (given to the City of Vancouver as an airspace parcel), here the idea is that 25% of the total space is non-market, but in only one of the two towers.

This would create 98 non-market rental units, (the same number in the existing market rental buildings on the sites) as well as 61 condos, while the second tower would have 143 condo units. The towers are similar in design, but not a matched pair, and are currently proposed at 32 and 33 storeys high. They’re designed, as many of the West End projects, by Henriquez Partners Architects.
