Does anyone know who the developer is on this project?

It looks like Stella McClure Investments.

 

Original developer was Mountain West, but I don't think they're around any more under that name. Their office at Upper Harbour Place in Vic West is also closed.

This was an odd site,  it was ready to go ahead years ago but I heard the developer/owner died which put the whole thing on hold.  It became a construction staging area for a nearby project, then seemingly abandoned again with a lot of dumped waste starting to pile up.  Residents had to contact the city to get the construction waste and piles of old mattresses hauled off.  Nice to see something finally happening.

To the best of my knowledge, this property was owned by the same person/group who owned the entire site to the west on McClure.

Are you referring to 1011 Burdett? It was developed by Mountain West Properties right around the time the company was pursuing approvals for 1038 McClure.

Yes.

 

Both properties were the home of Fairfield's last "hippy" homes.  :)

I wish I had photos, Mike. The homes and the inhabitants always took me back to my days in Vancouver in the late 60s, early 70s.
The house on the west end of McClure was easily 1890s and quite different from anything I've seen in the area. The one east of that sat next to a vacant lot and must have had at least 4 additions added over time. I believe that both households knew each other.

I should add that the same owner owned the properties on Burdett as well. They were in quite bad shape. One of them eventually went up in flames.

Wow. I love stories like that. So much of Fairfield was full of gorgeous homes that disappeared black-by-block to make way for four-storey 60's-vintage buildings.

Almost forgot... the house that now fronts onto the west end of McClure, sandwiched between the apartment building and the garage entry for 1011 Burdett, once faced onto Burdett until they moved it over to McClure to work on 1011.
