I was thinking that too - maybe forces aimed straight down, without a lot of angles or twists, although setbacks should be doable.

Some other wood projects getting government money

Quote:
Another notable Vancouver project receiving funding is at Main and Cordova in Downtown Eastside. Happy Harvest Inc. received $475,000 for the development of an 11-storey rental building, with eight storeys of cross-laminated timber (CLT) and steel structure, atop three storeys of concrete podium.



Reliance Properties was also awarded $500,000 for their upcoming renovation and addition to a historic Beatty Street warehouse on the edge of Yaletown. The four-storey, mass timber addition will add new office space to the neighbourhood.

Aww, crap. That's a shame. That was one of my favourite venues around here.

Was that Main & 5th site originally supposed to be a part of the Hootsuit/etc. office redevelopment in that area, or was it always left out?

Seems like they always planned some kind of tower (M5) on that corner from the renderings.

Though the BC Utilities commission mentions a 2029 completion date for a residential tower.

Quote:
A residential building (Building M5) is planned and expected to begin taking service in 2029, but
residential end-users will not materialize until that building is designed and developed further,
sometime in the future interim period. It is unknown at this time if the residential building will be
developed as strata units for purchase or rental units for lease. Either way, future residential end-users
of the cooling supplied by the Mount Pleasant DCS will rent or purchase units on a fully informed basis.

Wow, I hadn't thought of that before. That's a forest of columns, almost literally. A lot of older office buildings have been at a disadvantage for decades because of not being column-free, or at least column-limited. This really turns back the clock, and I have to say I'm personally not a fan. I'm sure there's a crowd out there that will give all the reasons in the world for why columns are a good thing again.

Brock is student housing and uses the most effective system for that use (10'x14' I think), while condos or office can use a different system at about 20'x20'. Been a while since I look at it so I could be wrong. But there are a variety of applications.

Public Hearing – April 13th, 2021

Public Hearing – April 13th, 2021 – North Shore Inspired Homes Bring A Landslide Of Community Benefits To The West End

Public Hearing – April 13th, 2021
One has to feel a little bit bad for our city council, as this meeting comes not even a week after they finally finished the public hearing that started on March 11th. Granted, Hannah and I know to a certain extent this is self-inflicted, as they often engage in a fair amount of posturing, and that’s the only reason this night would drag on for multiple evenings too.

After all, Item #1 is essentially just a series of policies run through a spell-check. It’s unlikely Item #2 well generate much attention either, as this 18 floor, 215 home rental building on the north side of Columbia Park is humbled by the changes at the Oakridge Centre. Our regular readers will remember we recently covered its Urban Design Panel review, though if Item #3 seems familiar, it will be because of the prescriptive nature of the Cambie Corridor Plan.

I’m not sure why our elected officials still insist on personally reviewing every one of these six story strata buildings, as their designs look nearly identical, and draw few if any speakers. This one is a slight exception, as some of its neighbours believe this is the one spot that this form is inappropriate. In contrast, Item #4 might be expected by the West End Community Plan, yet like others on this block, its design is anything but boring.

It might not be facing any opposition, but this 33 floor, 127 home strata building will enliven the neighbourhood in other ways as it will contribute roughly ~$31.5 million in community benefits. Conversely, on Thursday, city council will consider a proposal to save Vancouver taxpayers both time and money. We’ll dive into that idea, which would see non-market buildings of up to six floors allowed to bypass this process later this week, but for now let’s move onto tonight’s agenda.

Backlash Expectations

Item 2 – 325 – 341 West 42nd Avenue – Very Low
The construction at the Oakridge Centre is likely to ruffle more feathers than this application will.

Item 3 – 485 West 28th Avenue – Low
There’s a couple angry neighbours, but six floor buildings on Cambie rarely generate any attention.

Item 4 – 1616 -1698 West Georgia Street – Very Low
Much like its open house, so far all the correspondence has been in support.
