Quoting in part:
There’s a game of retail musical chairs currently happening in 100-block of West Lonsdale Avenue as shop owners await the outcome of a redevelopment application for the entire block.
Staburn Property Group is seeking to rezone the properties between 101 and 149 on Lonsdale. The mixed-use, six-storey development would contain 64 residential units, five of which would be low-income housing, as well as office and retail space at street level.
Included in the project is the preservation of The Beasley Block, a false-fronted, two-storey wood-frame building on the corner of Lonsdale and West First Street. Built in 1904, the Beasley is one of the oldest surviving buildings in North Van and currently houses Moodyville Cafe.
