As a former long time resident of Nanaimo I have doubts that the area will allow such developments. Nanaimo doesn't seem to wanna support big projects like these. Just my opinion though

^I'm not sure why you'd say that since the two tallest buildings on Vancouver Island are both in Nanaimo in spite of having a fraction of the population of Victoria

Vancouver’s Molnar Group is planning a $40-million apartment and townhouse project in Nanaimo as it continues to roll out development plans around Vancouver Island.

“We are big believers in the Vancouver Island market. We came over there long before major developers were coming there like they are now,” said Dak Molnar, managing director of the Vancouver-based Molnar Group.

Thanks for posting the above post SpongeG with regards to the Molnar group.

I have a bit of an update about the Sandstone project. It has been put up for sale by Northwest Properties.

I did e-mail them last year and they did respond in a positive manner.

It is now listed with Colliers. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xEqp5iK9aTI

https://www.collierscanada.com/23912#.Wt0ehMgvyUk

Some good details about the site in the video and brochure.

Development permit issued for Amrikko’s property at Departure Bay

Nanaimo city council votes 7-1 in favour of issuing a development permit for 1400 Wingrove St.

GREG SAKAKIMay. 10, 2018


The redevelopment plan for 1400 Wingrove St. is for a three-storey mixed-use building with a restaurant, other commercial space and 12 rental units. IAN NIAMATH image

A key property to the Departure Bay neighbourhood has received council’s permission to go ahead with a rebuild.

Nanaimo city council, at its meeting Monday at the Vancouver Island Conference Centre, voted 7-1 in favour of issuing a development permit for 1400 Wingrove St., the Amrikko’s site along Departure Bay Road.

The restaurant closed and never reopened after a fire in 2013.


Redevelopment plans have changed since then and the permit approved this week is for a three-storey, mixed-use building with a restaurant, other commercial space and 12 rental units.

The developer was granted six variances, most notably a reduction in required parking from 54 spaces to 13.

“This project represents a whole new rejuvenation and revitalization of the area and just for that alone, we should allow [it]…” said Ian Niamath, architect. “This project is way too important for it to be pinned on a few car spaces.”

Proposed 24-storey Nanaimo tower wins praise from council
Carla Wilson / Times Colonist AUGUST 16, 2018

A 24-storey downtown condo tower is heading to public hearing in Nanaimo as its developer also rolls out plans for a four-storey condo project near Vancouver Island University.

Wertman Development Corp. of Vancouver won praise around Nanaimo’s council table for its proposal which would be located in an area designated for high-rise development.

Council voted to send the plan to public hearing Sept. 6, 7 p.m., in the Shaw Auditorium in the Vancouver Island Conference Centre.

Coun. Diane Brennan welcomed the project. “It is an area of town that has been waiting for this kind of development.”

Nanaimo has a goal of increasing the number of people making downtown their home and helping to boost vitality in the city’s core.

Coun. Jim Thorpe is also a fan. “I really like this proposal. It is going to be real benefit to our downtown. I have no problem with the high-rise.”

The Marcielo tower would stand 78.5 metres. It would not be the tallest downtown building in Nanaimo. The Beacon, built more than 20 years ago, is 27 storeys and 84 metres tall. The Pacifica, with 445 residential units, has18 storeys and is 63 metres high.

Wertman is offering to contribute $38,000 in public art at the site. It would also give $72,200 to the city’s housing legacy reserve fund and $72,200 to improve Maffeo Sutton Park.

Coun. Jerry Hong said he would rather see the public art contribution go into the housing fund because of the shortage of affordable housing in Nanaimo.

Council votes to proceed with highrise rezoning after public hearing


Quote:
A proposed condominium tower in downtown Nanaimo has cleared another hurdle.

Nanaimo city council voted unanimously to approve the third reading of a rezoning amendment for a proposed 24-storey mixed-use building at 65 and 77 Chapel St. following a public hearing on Thursday night.

Dubbed Marcielo, the proposed highrise would be built on a 4,364-square-metre property in the city’s downtown core. It would feature 109 condo units, five townhouse units, ground-floor commercial units, office space, 167 underground parking stalls, a public plaza and a two-floor athletic club.


A rezoning amendment was required after the developers, Wertman Development Corporation, had requested increasing the floor area ratio as well as increasing the maximum building height from 19.8 metres to 78.5 metres.

Council’s decision to approve third reading means the proposed development must be reviewed by the province’s Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure before councillors can officially adopt the rezoning amendment.

Dale Lindsay, the city’s director of community development, said “it likely won’t be until at least October” before councillors will get to vote on final adoption.

It depends on which side of the building your counting from because the building was basically built on the side of a cliff so the water side is 22 stories and ~75 meters tall

Development permit approved for 24-storey Chapel St. high-rise

NANAIMO — A Vancouver-based developer is one permit away from being able to begin construction of a high-rise condo building in the heart of downtown Nanaimo.

By a unanimous vote Monday night, Council approved a development permit for a 24-storey, 110-unit residential condo building at 77 Chapel St., directly across from the courthouse.

"This is a remarkable and very important improvement for our downtown," mayor Leonard Krog said ahead of the vote.

The approval means Wertman Development Corporation needs only a building permit to break ground on what would be Nanaimo's second-tallest building.

Have they broken ground on this building yet? I just saw this thread today. It’s a really nice looking proposal. I hope it gets built.

On June 9 the Parksville Qualicum Beach News said that there is 2 20 story condo towers proposed for North Nanaimo with almost 500 units. I don’t know how to copy and paste links on my cell phone.

The developers behind a proposed downtown Nanaimo hotel are hoping to get shovels in the ground before year’s end.

Utah-based PEG Development has plans to build a $23-million 172-room, nine-storey Courtyard by Marriott hotel at 100 Gordon St. across from the Vancouver Island Conference Centre downtown.

Despite councillors approving a 10-year municipal tax exemption for the project and receiving building permits from the city in February, PEG Development has yet to begin construction.
