The current proposal was even more underwhelming when I saw who the architect is. He did the Parc Residences and The Falls in Victoria, and his Vancouver credits are many.


He also did Shutters and could have done the art gallery redo by Crystal Gardens but alas we are getting an ugly seniors home instead.

Harsh. So they won't be allowing attractive seniors to live there?

Maybe they can get Jane Fonda to act as the facility's godmother. That aught to encourage attractive seniors.

That policy would seem to be discriminatory against most of VV's membership.

This seems to have dropped off everyone's radar. Development Tracker indicates the proposal has been back with the applicant since June 29, 2017.

They've got enough on their plate with the Dockside project, I'm sure.

Their architect (James Cheng) also has a lot on his plate, with the number of projects he is attached to in Vancouver and Seattle. Victoria is small potatoes when he's got the Plaza of Nations redevelopment and a number of towers on the go. Bosa and Cheng are in the later stages of this 58-storey tower in Seattle:

Maybe Cheng hopes to use the plans for the above Seattle project to re-work the Empress proposal.  :lol:
