A proposal for a four-storey mixed-use residential building in Strathcona and two other proposals for residential buildings envisioned on sites near Queen Elizabeth Park Little go under the Urban Design Panel’s scrutiny Nov. 14.
The panel advises council and city staff on rezoning and development applications. It doesn’t approve or refuse projects or make policy decisions.

1) 1102 to 1138 East Georgia St.

The first is for a project eyed for 1102 to 1138 East Georgia St. The plan for the mixed-use development is for a 37-complex to replace a single-storey commercial/industrial building across from Admiral Seymour elementary school.
Thirty of the units would be three-bedroom, one would be a two-bedroom, four would be one-bedrooms and there would be two studios.
Twenty per cent of the units would be social housing managed by Anhart Foundation. Office, retail and restaurant space would be at street level.
The application is being considered under the Downtown Eastside Community Plan. The architect is Ekistics Architecture.
