Gastown Development Wave


Most Vancouverites don't realize that Gastown in the oldest neighbourhood in the city. But this timeless beauty has been and is still undergoing massive change. The most recent change was going to be the cancelled origami glass tower right next to Waterfront Station. Some folks as well as the panel overseeing the zoning thought the building was too modern for the vibe of the neighbourhood.


At this point there are numerous new development proposals in the works for Water Street. As well as even more redevelopment applications in the works.


“We have about eight inquiries or early inquiries (for Gastown developments),” said Brian Jackson, Vancouver’s general manager of planning and development. “That’s on Water Street, on Cordova, Carrall, Powell and Hastings.”
