Here’s another West End tower that can be developed thanks to the West End Plan. This is very similar to a nearby tower proposal by the same architects and developers, and is for a 30 storey tower designed by NSDA and now to be developed by Strand Developments with Intracorp. It was submitted a year ago and has already been approved as a rezoning. It will replace a 5 unit rental in a 1905 house, a 14 unit strata built in 1984 and a 23 unit rental building developed in 1955.
The new building has 82 market units, 24 of them studio and 1-bed and the remainder two bedroom or larger. A quarter of the space will be social housing (a plan requirement to permit the project to proceed). That space would see 39 units in total, with 20 two or three bed family units.
The render has been updated to show the Development Permit image.
