Does anyone have information on the redevelopment of the property at 1015 Cook Street (immediately south of the Wong Brothers building)? It would be interesting if the owners are intending to combine it with the lot for sale behind it on Rockland (which suffered a big fire) for a larger project...

For context.

Is it just 1015 Cook redeveloping? They don't share a lot line with 1114 Rockland. Also, 1009 and 1005 Cook are designated heritage sites.

As far as I know it’s just 1015 Cook. They are coming to present to Fairfield CALUC soon but no info is yet available...

Something similar to 1137 Meares could probably be built on the 1015 Cook property.

^ It'll be interesting to see what is proposed, since it'll be sandwiched between a Tudor-style conversion and a red brick low-rise

In this case they would want to build an addition at the back? Is this what we're saying? Or they would want to tear down the house?

 

I just can't get my head around the properties that come up for redevelopment in Victoria. I see the rumour thread has been bumped to the top and I immediately have visions of new life at this old parking lot or that old crapshack or empty lot or whatever. And then I'm surprised (yet again) to learn it's a site that probably shouldn't even rank among the top 200 most eligible candidates.

Heritage building proposals off to public hearings

July 13, 2018  http://digital.times...noredirect=true

 

Proposals to renovate two Victoria heritage buildings, including a Rattenbury-designed industrial building on Discovery Street, will go to public hearing.

Matt Phillips has applied for rezoning to renovate the upper level of the old Victoria Electric Railway Co. building into a co-work space for individuals and small start-ups. The ground floor at 502 Discovery is currently used as the Duke pub and Victoria Gymnastics. They are to remain and plans call for the addition of a coffee shop fronting Store Street.

….

Councillors have also agreed to send to a public hearing a separate proposal to include 11 rental units in a 2.5-storey addition to the Hall Block at 727 Yates St., a vacant heritage commercial building built in 1897.

721 Yates Street Properties of Vancouver, whose directors are Elizabeth Lee Rennison and Warren Andrew Rennison, has applied for a heritage alteration permit to add the extra floors, which would be stepped back from the street.

Plans call for retail space on the ground floor. The 11 one-bedroom units would be accessed via the existing entrance for the adjacent building, which has the same owners.

etc...

So apparently the plan is to redevelop this site into a rental apartment building. No renderings are yet available, but the community meeting will take place August 16.

I’m not sure if it’s a tear down proposal or a repurposing of the structure with additional new construction. The new owners will submit a rezoning request, so they will meet with Fairfield residents next month prior to filing this.

Also: 1015 Cook is not on the city’s heritage registry...

Compared to its southerly neighbour, is there anything particularly remarkable or unique about 1015 Cook Street?

It's hard to tell under all that terrible grey stucco.
