1296 West Broadway

The Denny’s on West Broadway, with its surface parking lot, has been an obvious contender for redevelopment for years.

An application was submitted in early 2017, and has been rezoned to allow a 16-storey mixed-use building with retail at grade and office or retail on the second floor, and 158 rental apartments above.

As initially illustrated (on the right) the design was very retrained, with only dark and light brick cladding. The architects are the very experienced IBI Group working for Jameson Development Corp.

It has evolved into something a little more interesting. There are 39 2-bed and 17 3-bed units, so it meets the ‘family-friendly’ policies of the City of Vancouver for purpose-built rental projects.
