We first reported on Reliance Properties’ plans for an eight-storey, mixed-use building at East Hastings and Semlin in May 2019.

Now, the developer has filed an official rezoning application for the project, designed by DIALOG, which will see ground floor retail, including an “urban room” public plaza concept and 131 market condominiums above.

Units will range from studios up to three-bedroom homes measuring between 1,000-1,100 square feet. Two live-work units are also proposed on the Semlin Drive frontage.
