Pacific Centre rotunda: 701 West Georgia

Cadillac Fairview’s plan to develop a two-storey pavilion building to replace the existing Pacific Centre Mall rotunda at the intersection of West Georgia and Howe streets is among projects that go before the Urban Design Panel March 20.

It’s the UDP’s second review of the project but its first as a complete development application with the current proposal.

Designed by Perkins + Will Architects, the pavilion includes new mall entrances from West Georgia Street, additional retail spaces on the main and upper level, improvements to the public open space and upgrades to below grade areas and the parkade.

The Development Permit Board is expected to make a decision on the development application at its May 13 meeting.

Six-storey mixed-use rental building: 2810 and 2830 Grandview Hwy

This rezoning application for a site on Grandview Highway by Kaslo Street is being considered under the City of Vancouver’s Moderate Income Rental Housing Pilot Program, which requires 20 per cent of the units to be reserved for households earning between $30,000 and $80,000 a year. Targeted rents for those units would range from $950 for a studio to $2,000 for a three-bedroom.

The building would include 57 rental units in total, 41 underground parking spaces, including one car share, and 111 bicycle spaces.
