799 Units of Housing Planned on Top of Vancouvers Canada Post Building

Rezoning application proposes 17-storey office two and 18- and 20-storey stepped residential towers on top of retained heritage building on West Georgia Street

Under Musson Cattell Mackey Partnership's proposed redevelopment, the 1958-built former Canada Post building on West Georgia Street would be retained and revitalized

Vancouver architectural firm Musson Cattell Mackey Partnership has submitted to the City of Vancouver its plans for the massive redevelopment of the Canada Post building in downtown Vancouver.

The application proposes retaining the huge, iconic Modernist building as, situated in the block between West Georgia, Homer, Dunsmuir and Hamilton streets, and updating it largely for commercial and office use.

The architects also propose using the seven-storey building as a podium, on top of which would be built three stepped towers – one for office use rising up to 17 storeys, and two residential towers rising up to 18 and 20 storeys.

The two towers would create 606,000+ square feet of residential space, which added to nearly 100,000 square feet of residential space in the podium building would total nearly 706,000 square feet of housing.

Under the proposal, there would be 427 market rental units (270 one-beds, 133 two-beds and 24 three-beds) as well as 372 condo units for sale (183 one-beds, 146 two-beds and 43 three-beds) – totalling 799 residential units.

The proposal includes six levels of parking, including 1,168 bicycle spaces, and a 49-space childcare facility. It also imagines the current parking strip along West Georgia at the front of the building becoming a public plaza served by the cafes and stores of the new podium building (see images above).

A community open house is scheduled for 5-8 pm on Tuesday, November 22, 2016 at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, 900 West Georgia Street.The public is invited to provide comments by filling out the online feedback form – ideally before January 2, 2017 to allow staff to consider changes to the proposal and to represent comments in the report to Council.
