Re: "South Cambie - Neighbourhood at a Glance," March 15.
Further to the South Cambie "Vancouver Special" feature, I, along with many of the residents of The Terraces living atop the south tower at Oakridge Mall, would like to bring to attention to the massive error printed in your description of the proposed changes at Oakridge Mall.
Your reporting of "a far more impactful project also looms on the horizon with a proposed 45-storey condo tower at Oakridge Mall" is completely misleading.
What looms is an aggressive rezoning application by Westbank Projects Corp. and Ivanhoe Cambridge to construct 13 towers. In addition to a total of 400,000 square feet of office space and 1,400,000 square feet of retail space the developers are seeking approximately 2,700,000 square feet of residential space comprised of 2,818 residential units in 13 towers with heights of six, eight, 12, 18, 19, 19, 25, 30, 34, 36, 36, 42 and 45-storeys with the tallest being at 412 feet high. Far more impactful than a single 45storey condo tower as reported.
