Rize (180 Kingsway) | 64.7m | 19fl | Proposed

As posted last week in the general vancouver thread, it is probably a good time to give this project it's own thread. I don't notice the integration with a possible transit connection at 10th ave in the drawings though.

Quote:
228-246 East Broadway & 180 Kingsway
Acton Ostry Architects Inc., on the behalf of Rize Alliance Properties Ltd., has applied to the City of Vancouver to rezone this site from C-3A (Commercial) District to a CD-1 (Comprehensive Development) District to permit development of a two-storey podium with commercial/retail/services uses on the Broadway and Kingsway frontages and artist production space at grade on East 10th Avenue at Watson Street. 5 levels of rental dwelling units (62 units) and 20 levels of market residential units (206 units) are also proposed. The proposed maximum floor space ratio (FSR) is 6.37 with a maximum building height of 245 ft.

Maybe the parking lot to the west of the site between Main and Watson may be the potential transit station.

I suppose it's unfair to expect them include a transit station in the design when the final alignment isn't even worked out, never mind the low probability of the extension actually happening in the next decade.

Makes sense they could always run a passage under Watson Street or Main Street. Won't be as open as Broadway City Hall, but it would work.

The new development at Oak & Broadway (currently the 7/11 & Money Mart strip mall) has plans for a station connection from street level including a station elevator, even though nobody knows whether the UBC line itself (and the Oak St Station) will be on 10th Ave or Broadway. Until its needed, I suspect that space will be used as tenant storage rooms.

Same with the new condos on Broadway & Arbutus - If I was the developer, I would make provision in the basement for a connection to the future UBC line and future Arbutus line stations, and have that as part of the sales pitch. "Direct access to Downtown & UBC using the SkyTrain & you don't have to go outside to catch the train"

I wonder how many people who bought into The Hudson were swayed by its direct connection to the Expo/Millennium line Granville Station? I have one friend who would have bought there simply because there was a Tim Hortons at their doorstep.

This project proposal appears to be 26 floors, not 20 as listed above.

The 20 levels of market housing begin above the 6th floor.

hey just saw a flyer in my neighbourhood strongly against this development, they want people to come out to the tuesday apr 12 meeting at the Heritage Hall, I believe it starts at 7pm, anyways there is a website www.stopthedevelopers.wordpress.com, go check it out, they let you comment as well.

Im heading down and I think more people who see change as good and want to help shape it should try to come out as well.

Well you could always lie...

I put a quick message, mainly supporting the project. I'm not totally sold, if they are actually going to be allowed that height (which I doubt they will) they should up the design asthetics of the tower.

Love the podium though.

There are several ways it could turn out, it seems. However, if that corner is anything like I remember it, just about anything would be an improvement.

the people who are developing the rize have some store front that they are giving to local businesses to operate pop stores...

story

Quote:
During the month of April, Dunlop will add pop-up shop curator to her list of current projects. Her spring 2011 collection, which she characterizes as "Twilight-meets-royal-wedding", has been chosen to share a converted warehouse space with local pop-art clothing line Hamburger Disco as part of the Rize Alliance Properties' pop-up shop initiative.

"They're giving the space free to local artists almost for the next year," Dunlop says. "I got April so I just kind of made my spring collection."

The developer has responded to community pressure and reduced the building to 19 stories. I'll post the revised plans at a future date, there are some rough renders floating around but they are of poor quality. We'll see if this is the last revision, I wouldn't be surprised if there is still a little trimming and reworking to do.

Stir units were also cut from ~62 to ~20.

Was the low-rise portion increased in height to shift massing around?

Seems to be following the trend - i.e. Marpole Safeway site - ask for tall, settle on medium.

They reduced one floor along Kingsway and one along 10th as well, they did add an indented penthouse level along Broadway. Overall density is done from almost 6.5 to ~5.33 which is still extremely high.

it would be cool to have one very tall in that area - but only one - at least it still has some height
