More rental apartments coming to Downtown South neighbourhood

The intersection of Davie and Granville streets in downtown Vancouver is seeing an uptick in development activity, with two new residential projects proposed close to the intersection.

The first is a new rental apartment building at the corner of Davie and Granville at the current site of the Tsui Hang Village Chinese Restaurant, a spot famous among Vancouverites for their late night take-out window and “special tea.”

Deecorp is proposing a seven storey mixed-use building with 94 rental apartments on top of street level retail. There will also be 47 underground parking spots.

Across the street, another proposal has come to our attention, although no formal application has been filed with the City of Vancouver. Sandwiched on a narrow lot between the Scotiabank Dance Centre and the Howard Johnson Hotel, local architect Gair Williamson Architects has designed a tall, narrow building named the “Han Tower” to fit neatly in between the two structures.

The building looks to be residential and is likely to be rental apartments considering the location and zoning.

The architect is known for their tall, thin buildings in Chinatown and Gastown, including the Keefer Hotel and Bar.

A couple blocks away is the recently completed Neon rental apartment building by Cressey, which is now fully occupied.
