I'm impressed, but mostly thankful that Cartem's isn't affected.

Hmmmmm… it looks quite handsome.

I like the subtle but striking detail of the 'ripple' facade with the wood inlay. Very nice.

That hotel is such a POS. Hopefully something spectacular will be erected in its place.

The parkade is ugly but other than that, this corner looks ok. The building that sits there now is actually pretty nice looking. Maybe they can retain the facade. The last thing downtown needs is another glass tower along with some more sterile glass retail.

I am especially excited by the prospect because it was bought by starwood. Hopefully they will completely rebuild and maybe finally give Vancouver a W or something of that nature!

Westin is owned by Starwood. They could very well keep it a westin. And it's hardly a peice of shit.

The location would be great for a landmark building. I doubt they will demolish the existing building, but does anyone know how tall tower this site would allow?

The existing building isn't that horrinble either. A well-kept product of its era.

The Bayshore Gardens CD-1 Zoning Bylaw (revised 1999) allows 2 new hotel towers of 16 and 18 storeys.
These are towers K and L on this diagram.
