I am keeping my hopes up!

What else they would be investing transit money in after Broadway and Surrey lines are built?

We're still another 10 years out from those being built. After that it will be another 15 years of squabbling over what line needs to be built next. Then another 5 years to get the funding....

Thx For the info.

So when this site gets developed what kind of fsr would be appropriate?

The article just says 3.0 FSR for residential and the listing says 3.0 plus 10% from the heritage density bank for 3.3 FSR.
It also says that there could be additional density if it meets a City objective (rental housing or core jobs growth).

Re Denny's site -

Isn't $467 per buildable sq foot very high. That would suggest they (the buyer) are expecting to get a much higher density sometime in the future. Presumably when the Broadway Line gets built.

Quote:
Likewise, many buyers view the long-term upzone potential in this area as an attractive feature.

Fsr 3 for that seems low. That west 11th proposal is 2.5 you would think in that location on Broadway it could support something higher

Anything under 5 FSR would be a colossal waste.

Would the 3.0 FSR for residential be in addition any at grade commercial?

The 3.0 FSR is inclusive of retail at grade. At those per buildable square foot prices, it only makes sense for the buyer to hold out for higher density. The Denny's also has a lease that doesn't expire until 2018.

What a pittance. It makes sense to hold onto the parcel and wait another decade before redeveloping. By then the M-Line should be under construction and they could probably land more than twice the density.

Just seems like a waste, though, to sink in almost $30 million and have to wait so long to redevelop.

Prices have been going a little nuts for land in the Central Broadway area lately. This will almost assuredly be rezoned for more citing "job space" like the BlueSky development at Oak.

Haven't prices been going a little nuts everywhere in Vancouver lately?

By lately do you mean the last 15 years?

Specifically talking about development land prices in that area. Went from the low/mid 300s to the mid 400s in about 6-9 months.

Of course, but then again remember this is Vancouver, not Burnaby, Port Moody, Coquitlam, New West or Surrey along the Evergreen, Millenium or Expo Lines.

I wonder what got the Jim Pattison Pavillion tower at the VGH approved. Towers of that height and density should be approved along the entire stretch of West Broadway.

Yep, Vancouver's downtown along the Expo Line is so much more inferior and backwards to the office parks at Lake City Way.

Isn't it owned by the Province (though one of it's agencies)? If so, it wouldn't have to pass city zoning laws such as is the case at BC Place. Or am I completely wrong...?
