The tower was approved in December of 2007. Tri-Eagle was banking on BC Ferries becoming the anchor tenant but when Jawl Properties swooped in with Atrium they usurped BC Ferries, as far as I understand, and Gateway Green was put on the back burner until another anchor tenant came along. Unfortunately right around the time this happened the market crashed and pent up demand for downtown office space evaporated almost over night.

Ever since then Tri-Eagle has maintained that the project is shovel-ready and awaiting an anchor tenant.

Realistically speaking if they get the deal the site will be under construction by late winter/early spring 2014 with completion by late 2015/early 2016. It's also a steel building so it should rise relatively quickly.

I have a feeling that rotherham building will stick out like a sore thumb in the near future

Anyone recall when the Rotherham building was built? What was the perception of it at the time? 3 floors in such a prime spot seems a little light on the density.

3 floors was too much density at the time so they had to add that well loved plaza out back. A fantastic building! Brick? Check! Low Density? Check! 3 stories? Check! Huge useless open space? Check. It's a Victoria dream project.
