Battle lines have been drawn by a small but vocal group opposed to a planned 15 story mid rise building at the corner of Main and Kingsway in Vancouver. They argue that the proposed building doesn’t belong in their neighbourhood but if they opened their eyes they would see that it is already there.
Three blocks away on the corner of 12th and Kingsway sits Stella, a 13 story residential building that also houses Kingsway Honda. The height difference between Stella and the proposed development at Main and Kingsway is roughly 20 feet. Given that Stella sits farther up the hill than Rize.ca’s proposed building Stella will actually be the same height if not slightly taller than the new structure.
Give your head a shake Mt. Pleasant, it’s time to move forward.
