Sparrow – 239 Keefer Street

Here’s another Chinatown project, this time coming forward within zoning and so avoiding any potentially contentious public hearings.

It’s an eight storey mixed use building originally called Keefer Gardens, but now renamed for marketing as Sparrow.

It has retail uses on the first storey and mezzanine above, General Office uses on the second and third storeys, and Residential on the fourth through eighth storeys, with 25 condos.

Mallen Gowing Berzins Architecture designed the building for Rendition Developments, who acquired the site of the former Chinatown Supermarket a couple of years ago.

The initial reviewed by the Urban Design panel suggested some changes to the first version, reflected in the model (right) and the marketing render (above). It’s a tight 50 foot lot, mid block, so the two storeys of parking will have a car elevator.
