I found it all in the Ministry of Economic Development's major projects inventory. (A major project is one whose capital costs are at least $15 million, or $20 million in the Vancouver area). I might have missed some & although I searched for existing threads I may have included some that already have threads. The inventory was last updated in Sept so the status of some of the projects (like the Conductor) seems to have changed since then.

923 Burdett is Mount St. Angela, isn't it? Interesting that it's listed on the Ministry's site. I hope it's still active -- I haven't yet gotten over how it was shot down by the suddenly-aroused neighbours on McClure... <grrrr>

21 Gorge Rd. E is a four storey, 60 unit condo designed by Praxis. It went before design panel yesterday and it was tabled. They thought it wasn't modulated enough to disperse the massing--it just looked too massive. To be fair, there are 3 small one-storey homes next door. The quote said by the Chair was, "This building is a truck and it needs to come back as a car".

This is a perfect example of "designing for the past" rather than the future - a Victoria tradition. Does anyone really believe these "3 small one-storey homes" will ALWAYS be there? Why should the new building have to "appease" them? Their days are numbered. Allow the new building to set a high standard for the future, NOT the past.

Map.

That's the old Capri Motel.

Yeah, that seems like they're trying to have it both ways. If it should remain sfd residential then by all means, reduce the massing (like they do with mfd's in Fairfield to retain the sfd flavour) but if the trend looks to large mfd's along a main artery (Gorge Rd.) then forget about trying to harmonize with a few old bungalows and just make good architecture.

I was wondering what was happening with the Capri. We had a brief chat about it on our VV walk. So now we sit and look at a boarded up building?

-------- Good Things Are On The Way ------


but in my opinion , the income-tax act is standing in the way of a "temporary-use" of that building , vs the option's the owner's have ...!

Sometimes ( and I'm NOT saying that this is happening there ) ,

but sometimes , it's easier to park a property , and apply for what you know are IMPOSSIBLE development permits , than it is to leave a property vacant , until it's price goes up ..!

Sure , some of you don't understand the income act ...!

Never-The-Less , it is a major factor in business ... ( ie: you can avoid a weed bylaw by applying for a permit to build something that you know is impossible )

or how my investment into a FAILED project , protect your CASH from the Tax-man ...!
(ya , you have to have an actual income , to take a deduction ) doctor's & lawyer etc...!


----- Thing's are going to happen @ the Capri

it's just a matter , of shifting "INVESTMENT-LOSS-TAX-CREDITS , into a project that actually make a buck or two , before it's gone ...!!!!!!

SERRIOUSLY , the income-tax-act SAYS you have to have an EXPECTATION of earning a profit IN THE LONG TERM ...!

the reality of it is this , costs invested into that idea , are deductible ...
( so why not ask for the sky & the Moon ...? knowing you'll get neither ...! )

ted... ( the income Tax-Act ,
is standing in the way of housing homeless working people in the short term )

;{-

.

( please try to read a page or two of it ) investment-loss Tax-Credit's ...?

There is a listing in the realestate newspaper for a new four storey residential building downtown which looks similar to this project, but different enough that it could be something else. Prices start at $168,000 it says. It's MLS # 268816. I tried looking it up on the MLS website but apparently that is an invalid number.

Ok, I'm stumped. I looked again at the project as advertised in the news paper and it definately looks different than the 613 Herald design shown above, so I assume that it must be a different project. The MLS number is 268816, but that comes up as invalid on the MLS website, http://www.realtor.c...ode=5&id=268816

So there must be another four storey residential project for downtown that we haven't heard about on the forum. It's very similar in size to 613 Herald though. Why the MLS website doesn't have it though I don't know.

Has the DRA heard anything about this?

Are you sure it's not 601 next door (formerly 1728 Government?)

Why don't you scan the ad and show us.

No, the building in the ad I saw was a modern design, not post-modern like the other Herald St. project.

Post the ad? What a concept! Now if only I could figure out a way to do that...!

Oh WTF, it's the Johnson and Vancouver project! This is the rendering that was in the paper.


From - http://www.tonyz.ca/....php4?id=268816

The rendering makes it look like there is a street scene in front of the building, but that's actually the back of the building.

Nevermind.

$168k - that's dirt cheap! Cheap as in inexpensive that is, as opposed to cheap as in cheap, of course.

Am I confused, or is that almost the exact same writeup for the Bossi units?
