The White Spot property purchase has not closed just yet, but details will emerge soon.

Will it be an IKEA? 

 

Or is that still scheduled to open at Hillside Mall?

 

Another Safeway?

I wouldn’t be surprised to see a hotel proposed for the site.

Then the province can buy it for another homeless shelter.

A drive through "showroom lounge" named John A MacDonald's?

That's quite a plot of potential.

It’ll fit a tower with a decent podium, for sure.

It also looks like a plaza and office component could be included per: https://www.timescol...glas-1.24323555

How about a single tower version of what's proposed on the downtown Vancouver White Spot property? [/sarcasm]

That corner won't even be recognizable in 5 years.

I can't see the Pauls restaurant building remaining, no need for parking and a restaurant in a supportive housing facility.

The old Sportsman Inn is pretty decrepit, and ties directly into the large empty lots to the west.

Wing Lee Holdings owns the empty building lots kitty corner from Pauls, as well as the parking lot behind them.

 

Seems possible that the entire intersection could see large scale (and large) redevelopment?

^ In addition, the buildings to the east of the lot are all low-rise, heritage-insignificant structures, where the vet clinic and car audio place is. How long before that lot gives in to redevelopment? 


Don't be so sure.:cool:

The issue there is the City is very adamant that this section of Burnside-Gorge remain business-dominant or light industry-dominant and not another retail-with-highrise-residential-above neighbourbood like Harris Green. The White Spot parcel is ok, but anything north of Discovery is currently a no go for residential density without sufficient light industrial at its core. That’s why this project was cancelled: https://victoria.cit...ver-arrow-cars/
