A curvy, mixed-use, market residential building proposed for the Little Mountain site, a social housing building for aging Chinese seniors, a 31-storey office tower planned for a “constrained” Coal Harbour site, and a five-storey mixed-use building envisioned for Dunbar Street are the four projects that will go under the Urban Design Panel's scrutiny this week.
The meeting starts at 3 p.m. in the town hall meeting room at city hall, Feb. 6.
First up will be Holborn Holding Ltd.’s eight-storey, market residential building being considered for 5299 Main Street. B+H Architects is the architectural firm on the project.
