Jim Pattison, a well renowned and local Vancourite is planning a new Mega tower development downtown near his Toyota dealership on Burrard Street and Drake.
This could be another tower that would dramatically alter the skyline of Vancouver. Vancouver City council and many developers are pushing forward and trying to navigate away from the mute green coloured glass towers that populate our current skyline. They want to create more diversity in the landscape of our urban centre.
He is seeking to get approved 3 towers that will dominate the corner of Burrard and Drake and provide approximately 800 units of residential living, as well as office and commercial retail space. Of course keeping the dealership and improving the quality of its location.
This construction would also include a large amount of commercial and residential parking that would help alleviate the current lack of parking in the area.
