The city is looking at the rezoning application by Amacon on Sept 20th. Architect is IBI.
The application proposes a residential tower with commercial uses at grade. The residential component consists of 121 units, with 20 studios, 71 one-bedroom and 30 two-bedroom units.
There is a 523.7 m2 (5,637 sq. ft.) commercial component, primarily oriented onto Burrard Street.
This application proposes an increase in density to 7.40 FSR for a total floor area of 8 911.3 m2 (95,920 sq. ft.).
The application proposes a 17-storey residential tower with three commercial units at street level. Parking is proposed below grade, with access from Harwood Street.
The application proposes a tower of 46.8 m (153.5 ft.) in height. While the height limit for this site in the Downtown ODP is 91.4 m (300 ft.), a view corridor (Granville Island to the Crown of Grouse) limits the height to 46.8 m (153.5 ft.). A proposed rooftop guardrail protrudes (up to 2 ft.) into the view cone at the southern end of the building, due in part to the slope of the site. However, staff are satisfied that this slight incursion will not compromise the view cone’s plimsoll line and will seek a frameless guardrail design to further
minimize any compromise to the view cone.
The proposal looks pretty refined and should make it through. There are some renders in the file as well if someone is interested in screen capturing them.
