A unique, mixed-use building is proposed for Railway Street in the emerging Railtown neighbourhood in the Downtown Eastside.

The seven-storey building is permitted under the area’s industrial (I-4) zoning.

The building will contain the following:

  • Manufacturing uses on the first through sixth floors;
  • General office uses on the sixth and seventh floors;
  • Two restaurants, class 1 on the first floor

Materials will include pre-finished metal cladding, concrete and clay masonry veneer, and architectural concrete.

The architect on the project is Mallen Gowing Berzins Architecture Inc. (MGBA).
