Two new industrial projects for Frances Street in East Vancouver

Development on Frances Street in East Vancouver near Clark Drive is heating up, with two new proposals in one week.

The neighbourhood is becoming increasingly attractive to developers looking to construct light industrial buildings, with lower land prices than popular Mount Pleasant and a similar proximity to downtown Vancouver.

One of the new proposals is at 1270 Frances Street, designed by Kirsten Reite Architecture. The development application is for a four-storey mixed use building with a restaurant and brewery on the first floor (tenant unknown), “information communication technology manufacturing” on the second and third floors, and general office space on the fourth floor.

There will also be two levels of underground parking with 56 stalls. The architect says the design of the building is inspired by the nearby Railtown area, and the building will include a landscaped courtyard.

Nearby is another four-storey industrial manufacturing building, this one designed by Billard Architecture.

The building will have manufacturing use on the first three floors, and office space on the fourth floor. There will be 19 underground parking stalls.
