A four-storey mixed-use building with manufacturing use could replace the old 3 Vets building at 2200 Yukon St.

Proscenium Architecture + Interiors has filed a development permit application with the City of Vancouver for a project that would feature manufacturing use on the first and second storeys and general office use on the second, third and fourth storeys.

3 Vets, a family-run outdoor equipment store, shut down last December after 70 years in business — almost 50 of those years in the building at 2200 Yukon St. The owners had been dealing with high property taxes, as well as increased competition with big-box retailers and online shopping. They sold the building for $20.4 million in a deal that was finalized in April 2017.

The property, at Yukon and West Sixth, had been assessed at $14.9 as of July 1, 2017, up from $11.9 million the previous year.

A Canada goose, meanwhile, has become a fixture at the 3 Vets parking lot over the past several years.

The development permit application was filed in March. It envisions a 54,492-square-foot building with a proposed floor space ratio (FSR) of 3.0, a proposed height of 60.04 feet and three levels of underground parking with vehicle access from the lane.

Under the site’s existing zoning, the development permit application is conditional so it may be permitted but requires a decision by the city’s director of planning. To be included in the staff review, written comments should be submitted before June 19, but comments will be considered up until the date of the decision.
