The new condominium building is designed with sustainability in mind and will include staggered windows, a conservative window-to-wall ratio of 33 per cent, and sun shades on the south facing (West 49th Avenue) elevation.
The application is being considered under the Cambie Corridor Plan.
The development is located across the street from Langara College, and the Langara YMCA redevelopment, which will include two towers of 14-storeys and 20-storeys.
