Solterra Development Corp. is proposing an 11-storey building for an empty property at the corner of Fir Street and West Seventh Avenue.
IBI Group filed a development application for 1616 West 7th on behalf of Solterra. An open house about the project is set for July 25.
The building would reach 36.5 metres and feature 43 units. There would also be two four-storey townhomes along West Seventh and 6,000 square feet of community amenity space over two levels at the southwest corner of the building along Fir Street.
Under existing zoning, the application is conditional, so it may be allowed but requires a decision by the Development Permit Board (DPB).
Of the 43 units proposed, 17 would be one-bedrooms, 23 would be two-bedrooms and three would be three-bedrooms.
“The neighbourhood is at the edge of Kitsilano, a traditional residential area of the west part of the city. The development proposal of a mix of 1-bedroom and 2-bedroom units fits well within the demographic demand in the district,” the application states.
The July 25 open house takes place from 4 to 7 p.m. at Holy Trinity Anglican Church.
The application is currently scheduled to go before the DPB on Oct. 28.
