From the rezoning website: http://rezoning.vancouver.ca/applications/349wgeorgia/index.htm
The City of Vancouver has received an application to rezone 349 West Georgia Street (former Post Office site) from Downtown (DD) District to Comprehensive Development (CD-1) District to allow for redevelopment retaining the existing Post Office building and adding two residential towers and one office tower above. The proposal includes:
  • Retention of heritage building and its conversion into a seven-storey podium containing retail along all street frontages, housing, office, and parking
  • Adding three towers above podium, including 17 storeys of office, and 18 and 20 storeys of residential
  • 799 residential units (372 market condominium units and 427 market rental units)
  • An overall floor space ratio of 12.9 FSR
  • Six levels of parking, including 1,168 bicycle spaces
  • A 49-space childcare facility

Agree to point that we have too many glass towers in Vancouver but the old post office badly needs a face lift. :)

I hope they improve how the historic podium address the street. At the moment the north, east and west sides of the building are almost all solid wall.
