Public Hearing Apr 14th, quoting in part:
The third of four mixed-use commercial/residential tower projects proposed for Lower Lonsdale is now coming up for scrutiny by council and the public.
Developer Polygon is looking to build a sevenstorey tower (five storeys of residential on two storeys of commercial) at 255 West First St. and 260 West Esplanade, currently home to Hollyburn Family Services and Family Services North Shore.
If approved, the building will have 208 one, two, or three-bedroom condo units, at least 62 of which have adaptable designs, to accommodate seniors and people with mobility issues. Measured from First Street, the building would be 52.5 feet tall, according to a city staff report.
Previously, Polygon had pitched a 16-storey highrise for the site, but later abandoned those plans.
