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).
