But how do you feel about the Frank Stanzl Building?

Twenty-ish floors is fine. Brutalism is not.

That building is great, both in size, form and interiors in great original condition. Needs a scrub outside and a plaza sculpture though.

I don't think that this will be a receptive audience for your group's position.

Well we should all send our letters of support.

Does anyone have the correct email address to send them to before the public events this week?

For those asking how to voice support in favor of the proposals / building heights at NEFC, here's the links / instructions.

How to Have Your Say
If you want to speak in person register here.

Otherwise, you can use the instructions below to send your comments to city council: (Note, all personal information, aside from your name and comments, will be redacted by the city clerks).

Include your name (anonymous comments aren’t shared with Council).
The deadline to send your comments is 15 minutes after the speaker’s list closes.
If you send your comments during the meeting, use a maximum of 1,500 words.
Comments are posted on the City of Vancouver’s website.

Email: publichearing@vancouver.ca

*If you want to submit a response to council, and need more instructions, let us know, and we’ll do our best to give you some added guidance.

I'd also give some density bonuses to blocks around the skytrain.
I wouldn't like that at all. When viewed from Yaletown, or from Granville/Cambie bridge, the table top strip would look absolutely ghastly. At the moment, VGH's Jim Patterson Pavillion and a couple of buildings built in the 60s-70s are making the skyline there look tolerable.

Yeah, not a good idea. People will get attached to the temporary park, and when it's time to build the real park, guess who'll be standing in front of the bulldozers? Probably going to get the anti-demolition crowd in on it too.
