245 East Georgia Street

The 200 block of East Georgia Street already has an innovative nine storey building on a 25 foot wide lot, called The Flats.

Now four years later there’s another building that’s the same width on the same block. This project has 40 rental units in another nine storey building, this one designed by Gair Williamson, named the Albert Block.

An earlier seven storey condo project by a different developer was approved for development before the site was sold on in 2012 for just over a million dollars.

The ‘as built’ is pretty close to the render that was published a couple of years ago (below).

Completion of the building has crawled forward very slowly in the past year, but now there’s a flurry of activity on site as the finishing touches are being added to the retail unit on the main floor. That has black details rather than the lighter colour scheme seen in the render, but everything else seems to be as expected.
