This is the latest West End Plan tower to be submitted as a Development Application (not a rezoning).
It’s for 60 residential units (36 strata and 24 affordable market rental housing units) over a small retail unit on the corner of Alberni and Denman.
It will be 21 storeys high, and is designed by Rafii Architects for Landa. The architects note that it “has been designed as an array of “boxes” oriented in different directions which interplay with each other and departs from the more common vertical box of concrete and glass.”
Although each floor is under the 5,500 sq ft guideline, because of the projections the overall building footprint will need a relaxation to be allowed to go forward – so the views of the Urban Design Panel will be important.
