If I remember 80? maybe 60.

I wonder if it's actually 18 or 17 minis the thirteenth floor, like Concert tends to describe their projects.

Know it all.

60 - 80 units doesn't seem like that much for a 17 storey building. If it is 60, 3 - 4  units a floor really isn't a lot.

Has anyone seen any renderings or even massing studies for this proposal?

BTW, Phillip Nyren either closes in 7 days or 25 days depending on which sign in the window is accurate (I am pretty sure it is the former).

I haven't been in to ask, but there is nothing posted outside that mentions a new location.

DTZ Victoria is pleased to announce the sale of the commercial building currently occupied by Philip Nyren Menswear at 960-962 Yates Street in downtown Victoria. Rick Pettinger and Amanda Neal represented the Seller (Three Sheet Holdings Ltd.) in the transaction. The buyer is a local developer. The transaction is unconditional and closing in February 2015. The site is planned for re-development and DTZ is working on behalf of Philip Nyren Menswear to find a new location for their retail store.

Here's the design, a first draft. The architect, Peter de Hoog, was mulling over changes to some aspects when I spoke with him, but overall this is the idea. The city requires a street wall right at the sidewalk and had suggested five floors, this design does three. The tower fills the allowed density of the site, 5.1 FSR. The architect and developer opted to build to the allowed height of 50 m rather than a shorter and wider building. There are two retail spaces on the right side of the street front and the garage entrance on the left side.
 
Architect: de Hoog & Kierulf Architects
Developer: Alpha Project Developments

Of course these images have been shown before. Not sure why I had forgotten them. Thanks again for sharing Dylan.

No balconies on the most sun exposed side of the building?

Only on the 15th floor apparently.

50% of the potential store frontage lost to the underground parking. Gah.

Not exactly. Of the three bays on the left side of the ground floor, the first has visitor parking behind it (similar to Mondrian), the second is vehicle access, and the third is human body access (ie. lobby). OK so 1/3 of the frontage lost to parking.

I just walked past this site (only 17 days remain to purchase men's wear at Philip Nyren - women's wear is already closed) and the rezoning application sign says the plan is for an 18-storey mixed use building. None of the renderings I have seen suggest anything more than 17. Any more news out there?

Might be the difference between the total height and occupiable height.
