1030 Denman Street - DP-2016-00193

DA Architects and Planners has applied to the City of Vancouver for permission to convert this existing hotel and podium to a 316 unit secured market rental residential tower, plus a 68 guestroom ‘boutique’ hotel* in the podium.

    • The existing commercial uses on lower levels of the podium are to remain;
    • The restaurants, Hotel Conference facilities, and Fitness club on the second and third podium levels are proposed to be replaced with a new hotel*; and
    • No changes are proposed to the existing height, density or form of development provisions of the CD-1 (537) by-law.

Under the site’s existing CD-1 (537) zoning, the application is “conditional” so it may be permitted; however, it requires the decision of the Director of Planning.

*The proposed hotel use in the podium is the subject of a separate text amendment rezoning application. (use link: http://former.vancouver.ca/commsvcs/planning/rezoning/applications/1030denman/index.htm)
