Vancouver’s Kitsilano neighbourhood is set to see its second London Drugs store location.
A development application has been submitted by MCMP Architects to redevelop the site at 2803-2865 West 4th Avenue — a vacant site at the northwest corner of the intersection of West 4th Avenue and Macdonald Street, as well as three adjacent properties occupied by residential and commercial buildings.
The development’s amalgamated lot size is about 19,000 sq. ft.
The proposal calls for a new 49-ft-tall, four-storey mixed-use building with London Drugs on the ground floor and 67 homes on the upper floors.
This London Drugs location will be smaller than the chain’s average-sized store, with a floor area of approximately 17,000 sq. ft. — similar to the size of the London Drugs store at the Olympic Village.
Three underground levels will contain 168 vehicle parking stalls accessed from the lane.
London Drugs has another location nearby, on West Broadway just west of Yew Street. This summer, it will also be opening a store at Vancouver House in downtown.
