PROJECT MILESTONE: 1495 West 8th Avenue rezoning approval

On January 24 2017, Vancouver City Councillors and Mayor Gregor Robertson voted unanimously in favour to approve the rezoning for 149 secured rental residential units, a new 4 storey Vancouver Masonic Centre with rental event space, and a restaurant space on 7th Avenue. SHAPE Architecture worked in close collaboration with Colliers International, BC Housing, the Vancouver Masonic Centre Association, and the City of Vancouver to deliver a mixed-use building calibrated to maximize benefits to the public realm within the numerous site constraints.
