A New Sibling for City Hall? 13 Floor Art Deco Rental Tower Proposed for South Granville

1540 West 10th
We recently posted the notification card for this 63 home rental home building proposed for West 10th and Granville. While I arrived at this event shortly after it started, Darren had to make his way over from the open house for the Hollywood Theatre. By the time he arrived, most of the food and all of the sugary treats the applicant provided were gone, though I did manage to save him a macron. Still, both of us were happy to be at the event, as we really enjoy attending pre-application events and getting to see a new vision for an area of our city. It's the first time the public gets to see the design and, more importantly, public opinion is magnified, which can result in drastic changes to a project. That said, a reduction in parking isn't that likely as the building is required to not only to provide parking for its own use, but is also required to replace the stalls of the current surface parking lot.

I heard the wait for the car elevator at Jameson House is brutal - can be 40 minutes (?) at peak times

Jameson House has a fully automated parking system, not just a simple elevator where you still self-park

Was referring to more of the semi-automated "drive-in" systems, maybe a 3 car per lift system which can go from $25k-$50k, and is Jameson House a few years old? I know speeds and systems have improved.

Kiwassa East? Vancouver doesn't stop making new neighbourhoods and districts. Doing some digging (aka a phone call to James) the area guidelines are still being created and this project is a precedent on what the guidelines will/could mmaterialize into. Fingers crossed this oesn't get beaten back. The City doesn't get a lot of components of this project that make it cool and very "industrial Gastown/Portland". It's trying to create some neat nooks and unique spaces with laneway activation that should be more common in the DTES and central Van.

Please atend if you can because the images I was sent look fantastic!

Just read your blip on your website and after going to Finch's Market in Strathcona and walking around... the old commercial space that either still exist or have been converted to residential on non-arterial streets, this project simply harkens back to that sense of community retail, and local semi-light-industrial shop/manufacturing on the main level with apartments above. This project seems very early 20th century!

It is very idential to the project going up at Commercial Dr. and East Pender. Idential almost. Has a very "refined fammily living" East Side Crawl vibe to it. PM me if you want more info.

Looks like Bastion are proposing a Walter Francl-designed 11 storey building on the Shell station at Broadway and Arbutus: http://bastion.ca/projects/cassis/



The alternating facade elements with heavy use of 2-storey solid vertical elements is quite similar to Francl's design for Second + Main:

Also found on the Bastion site, apparently there's still a final undeveloped parcel at Arbutus Walk. Proposed design by Stephane Laroye:

New affordable rental homes for moderate-income households

Vancouver Courier

By Joannah Connolly


Renters in households earning between $30,000 and $80,000 annually could be able to qualify for homes in 20 new rental buildings under a new City of Vancouver pilot project.

Following a request for proposals under the Moderate Income Rental Housing Pilot Program, the City has shortlisted 20 new rental building proposals, which have been invited to submit rezoning applications. In each of these developments 25 per cent of the homes will be targeted to moderate-income households at affordable rates, and the remainder would be secured market rental units. If all the developments are built, this would create a total of 750 moderate-income homes and 2,250 market rental homes.

Qualifying households for the moderate-income units would be those with a single income of $30,000 to $50,000 per year, and dual-income households earning between $50,000 and $80,000 per year. A single person earning $70,000 a year would not qualify, for example.

The monthly rents for those will be set at what is deemed affordable for moderate-income households, as follows:

• studio units: $950

• one-bedroom: $1,200

• two-bedroom units: $1,600

• three-bedroom units: $2,000

The City said that any future rent increases on the moderate-income units will be permanently capped at the provincial Residential Tenancy Act annual allowable increase, regardless of unit turnover. This means that when tenants move out of a moderate-income unit, the rent for that unit cannot be reset to market rates.

It's not 25%, but 20% of residential floor area.

Rents are starting rents (opening of proejct).

There is an April 13, May 4, and May 25 pre-application deadline for the projects, wit the latest response by the City on August 6th. Then they go through an expedited rezoning process. Many 10-storey buildings in this program.

No. No it doesn't.

Car elevators are a last resort. They fail all the time and cause huge headaches.

Thanks for the update. It's a scandal that in a vibrant neighborhood at the confluence of 4 arterials, over 50% of the ground floor is consumed by residential. What a waste. You'd never find this shit in Toronto.

I saw the duke was all lit up in pink tonight, I didn't know it had a lighting feature on top. Looked ok, a little oddly lit, like an uneven jumbled kind of lighting.

The site formerly owned by WalMart has been sold, as well as another property next to Marine Gateway (Kia site). The Wal-Mart site will be redeveloped as industrial space and the Kia site may be redeveloped with office space.

Hungerford Properties purchases 15.5 acres on Marine Drive
http://www.vancourier.com/real-estat...ampaign=buffer


The acquisition of the 12.5 acre site at 86 Southeast Marine Dr. represents, in terms of square footage, the largest private sale in the last 10 years in the city, according to Hungerford Properties.
http://www.vancourier.com/real-estat...ampaign=buffer


A Kia dealership currently operates at 396 Southwest Marine Dr., a three-acre site which was just acquired by Hungerford Properties.
