There will be an “activated laneway” between this building and a soon-to-be renovated commercial building at East 4th and Main Street. The former RBC Visa processing centre at 2015 Main Street saw a development application put forth earlier this year.

The activated laneway will feature seating areas and a special paving treatment.

The City of Vancouver recently approved zoning changes to the Mount Pleasant industrial area to help establish it as a high tech corridor. The neighbourhood is also seeing new residential development along Main Street. Chard Development is preparing to launch presales for Elenore on Fifth, and Create Properties is selling condos at its Second + Main development.
