Let's hope the design work results in a less boxy structure.

The exterior design will be largely the same as what was approved in the Development Permit. Any differences (and I mean anything) has to be approved by Planning, and if the differences are substantial it would trigger a brand new DP application for general compliance.

 

That said, there are usually a lot of small differences between the proposal and the final product. I recently did the Building Permit review for a Concord Pacific project here, and it sprouted a third rooftop electric room, double-height elevator overruns, completely re-organized window and spandrel patterns, and about 150% more mechanical louvres for ventilation. Even with all that we let it through with just staff review, the overall design was deemed consistent with the issued DP.

I realize that. It was just wishful thinking on my part.

The 800-block of Fort Street, known for generations as Antique Row for its collection of antique, used furniture and vintage houseware retailers, will undergo significant change in the coming years as multiple mixed-use development efforts aim to revive the business opportunities along the commercial corridor.
