It looks like the days could be numbered for the iconic Dairy Queen restaurant at 2109 East Hastings in East Vancouver.

A rezoning application has been submitted to the City of Vancouver by Mosaic Homes to redevelop the property into a mixed-use development with secured market rental housing.

Designed by local firm Yamamoto Architecture, the proposal calls for a six-storey, mixed-use building with 4,700 sq. ft. of commercial space on the ground floor, including a 2,700-sq-ft corner unit for a restaurant, and 42 rental units within the upper floors.

There will also be 45 underground parking spaces to support the residences and commercial units.

The project is being considered under the Grandview-Woodland Community Plan. An open house will be held from 5 pm to 7:30 pm on Monday, November 6 at the Aboriginal Friendship Centre at 1607 East Hastings Street.

Other properties elsewhere in the city that house the frozen treats chain could also be redeveloped. The Dairy Queen at 821 Denman Street, near Robson Street, in downtown Vancouver’s West End neighbourhood permanently closed late this summer.
