Vancouver council to vote on rezoning for planned 55-storey tower


Vancouver city councillors are scheduled to debate and vote on a rezoning application Wednesday, for what could be the city’s fourth tallest building — a condo tower at the north end of the Granville Bridge.

The project will need to be changed from its current 17-storey zoning if the developer, Pinnacle International, is to be allowed to move forward with its plan for a 55-storey tower on the east side of the bridge, just across from the city’s current fourth tallest building, the twisting Vancouver House.

Public comment and submissions to council closed Sept. 17, with about twice as many comments opposed to the project as in favour, including two petitions against it.

The land was set for social housing, and as part of its plan, the developer intends to include 152 social housing units along with the 303 market condominiums.
