Open House for 42-storey tower at 1396 Richards on Oct 25th

An Open House has been scheduled to gather public feedback on a proposal to build a 42-storey tower and a 9-storey building at 1396 Richards and Pacific. The event will be held on Thursday, October 25th, between 5-8pm in a drop-in format at 181 Roundhouse Mews (Community Centre at Davie & Pacific).
The proposed development would contain 269 residential units, of which 129 units are rentals that are separately contained in the lower 9-storey building. While the development has a density of 8.6 FSR, the 42-storey tower component has a small floorplate with only 3 or 4 units per level. Rearranging the massing of the building in a lower form could lessen the impact on views of the 410 ft (125m) tower component. There are 15 units of rental per floor; the market rentals include a number of decently sized units. The design also contains a 37 space daycare at grade along with commercial uses at ground level. Further details are on the city’s website. The applicant is Onni Group, and it appears the architect is Dialog
