The redevelopment of the Little Mountain Housing site is no longer “on hold” as the applicant, Holborn Properties, has submitted a revised application on April 22nd, 2016. Holborn is also the developer behind the nearly completed Trump Tower in downtown Vancouver. Full details on the revised application are available on the City’s rezoning centre website.
The Urban Design Panel is set to review this application on Wednesday, May 18th at 3:25pm. The City has not announced any ‘public consultation’ sessions yet on the revised proposal. The UDP meeting can provide an opportunity for members of the public to learn more about the new project design. For reference, we’ve reproduced the UDP agenda for the Little Mountain rezoning below:
