Latest BEACH CRESCENT neighbourhood development updates package

BEACH CRESCENT neighbourhood development updates package.
This is the best and newest Vancouver residential neighgbourhood.

A 52-storey twisty tower at Granville Bridge's north end and a mini-village under the bridge inched closer to reality when Vancouver city council sent the proposal to public hearings.

Westbank's proposal for a 497-foot-tall tower, designed by Danish architect Bjarke Ingels and DIALOG Design it promises to inject a cool factor into the Downtown South neighbourhood.

That area, bounded roughly by the West End, Yaletown and Robson Street, is being transformed with more than 2,000 new condominiums and at least 325 purpose-built rental units in more than a dozen real estate projects in various stages of development.

The district's population of 17,000 is expected to swell to 26,000 by full build-out, the city's assistant director of planning, Kevin McNaney, told Business in Vancouver.

Westbank's tower would have 407 condominiums, 98 market rental units, and be part of a transformation under the Granville Bridge.

Council envisages a neighbourhood centre under the Granville Bridge that would include a drug store, grocery store and shops and services.
