After years of being vacant, a DTES property (95 W Hastings at Abbot) is to become a 10-storey 132-unit market rental building, with retail, built by the Holborn Group.  Just as soon, that is, as they get their Trump Tower into operation and their Little Mountain 17-building, 15-acre 8-year project past planning stage.  It will be another change in an area that has been moving away from dereliction for years.

The design is by architect Gair Williamson.

Rental units (132) consist of 83 studios, 3-1 BR, 46-2 BR. Parking for 74 vehicles and 167 bicycles.  Three commercial / retail units at street level. Floor plan detail HERE.  None of the units is large.

Thanks to Frances Bula in the Globe and Mail for the tip.

Check it all out from 5 to 8 pm on Thursday, January 26, 2017 at Vancouver Community College (255 West Pender Street), Room 240, with the applicant team and City staff available to answer questions.  Online feedback welcome HERE.
