A modestly-sized housing redevelopment has been proposed for downtown Vancouver’s West End neighbourhood on a site near the border with Stanley Park.
A development application by Marcon Development seeks to develop the site at 2030 Barclay Street into a 190-ft-tall, 10-storey residential building with 19 market strata dwelling homes.
The unit mix is comprised of 14 two-bedroom units and five three-bedroom units, making the units suitable for larger families.
“The existing building on the site has been operated as a hotel, which means that the zero rate of change provisions in the area for rental accommodation does not apply,” reads the design rationale by Shift Architecture and Henriquez Partners Architects.
“Therefore, the site can be developed as a market condominium project… Inspired by most of the buildings in the West End, the proposed architecture is unabashedly modern, but residential scaled windows and warm textured materials, including masonry, gives the appropriate character for this area of the city.”
A total of 40 vehicle parking stalls will be constructed within three underground levels.
There will be a total floor area of 39,252 sq. ft., giving the project a a floor space ratio density of three time the size of its 13,000 sq. ft. lot.
