Just days after Pronto Cafe announced it was shutting down its location on Cambie Street early next month, a development application has been submitted to the City of Vancouver to turn the small, narrow site into a mixed-use redevelopment without any land assembly.

A proposal by Matthew Cheng Architect Inc. calls for a four-storey-tall building to replace the existing 1938-built, one-storey, art-deco-themed restaurant building at 3473 Cambie Street.

There will be a dental office on the ground floor and five residential units within the upper floors.

One level of underground parking will be accessed from the rear on Tupper Street.

Total floor area created will be about 10,000 sq. ft.

Pronto Cafe operators say they will relocate and occupy the former space of Hub Restaurant at 1037 Denman Street in downtown Vancouver’s West End.

The new restaurant, dubbed ‘Centro’, does not have an opening date at this time.
