A high-profile city block enveloped by the busy thoroughfares of Yates, Cook and Johnson streets is poised for redevelopment into a mixed-use residential and commercial node, Citified has learned.

 
Vancouver-based Chard Development has unveiled plans to transform several parcels surrounding the Victoria Professional Building at 1120 Yates Street into a condominium tower at the corner of Cook and Yates streets, an affordable condominium along Cook Street, and a rental complex fronting onto Johnson Street.
 
The aged mixed-use office and retail building will undergo an interior and exterior modernization along with a comprehensive expansion of its on-site parking via a multi-storey underground parkade accessible to commercial tenants, their clients and future occupants of the three residences.

It'd be weird to see the professional building gone before all the dealerships in the area...

Doesnt sound like the professional building goes anywhere just an 'exterior and interior moderation'

No attachments are in the system yet, but it looks like a hard has filed for resining and a development permit for this property (1100 Yates).

So are things clear or is it a sticky situation?

Plans are now up. Developer is Chard, architect is Proscenium. This project is referred to as Cook Street Plaza in the plans.

I notice the "no-go" shacks at the corner of Cook & Johnson are mostly absent from the above renderings.

Notable bits:

  • Existing building to be retained as medical offices
  • There will be an affordable condo component similar to Vivid, with support from BC Housing (47 units)
  • There will be a market rental component (47 units)
  • There will be 107 market condo units (total 201 housing units)
  • An 8,700 sq. ft. childcare facility is proposed

And a second set of renderings

FWIW, one of the requested variances is for height. OCP permits up to 8 storeys, but 15 storeys is permitted across the street. Chard is asking for a variance allowing 12 storeys in one of the buildings for a more gradual height transition (and avoid a tabletop)

Unless the SJW's on Victoria council hold the project hostage for all "affordable" rentals.

And let's not forget the Fernwood NIMBYs who will likely present both gentrification and height as issues.

Assuming it gets built anything like the renderings.

Well this is also Fernwood so will be interesting to see what they have to say about the height. DRA did not like the height across the street from this. I want to see some more pictures but I am liking this first look.

Of note is Chard's use of Proscenium. This is the first time he's used their services for a local project, and other than using DHK for the four-storey Duet building and the Duck's Block/Canada Hotel development, the architectural firm has been exclusively MCMP.

The medical building and the building behind it look like they'll be almost touching. Anyone who wants to fire pellets at the taller condo building from back there would have a very narrow line of sight.

They do look reaaally close, even when you consider that one of them is 5 storeys and the other is 6, so there's an illusion of equal height because of the perspective. According to the drawings, the buildings are 13.77 m (45') apart. The overhead view is more forgiving.

If the 12-storey building gets chopped down, this project will be abysmal.

I thought you meant his use of the word 'proscenium'. it's the area between the orchestra & the curtain in a theatre, so I guess he's saying that if you're travelling into town on yates st, cook is the curtain, and past there is the stage, where all the action happens. :P actually just across the street is pacific mazda, where that jawl project is, the one with the fire hall, etc. then a block away is the mondrian & the wade. that's going to be a pretty lively neighbourhood when it's all done. :muching_out:
