One of these proposed Vancouver Burrard Gateway condo towers may be 48 storeys, either matching or even exceeding the current downtown height restrictions for residential high-rises. The Burrard Bridge north end project site where the Vancouver Burrard Gateway proposal is, is actually 1 of 6 different development sites in which the City of Vancouver is considering changing the height restrictions for specific developments and proposals.

This mega Vancouver real estate development could even break ground early next year if the city likes what they see in the proposal. Costing about $500 million, the join effort between Reliance Properties and Jim Pattison Group will see the development of at least three high-rise Vancouver condo towers at the Burrard Gateway Building Project site which is located at the north end of the Burrard Bridge. The entire project site actually spans an amazing twenty three (23) city lots near Hornby, Drake and Burrard Streets. This master planned Downtown Vancouver Burrard Gateway Building Project proposal is for a mixed use neighbourhood complete with commercial, retail and residential space. According to MetroNews Vancouver and the Vancouver Sun, if all goes well with the proposal stage, the Burrard Gateway Vancouver real estate development may even start in the next 1½ years. The 23 city lot project requires rezoning by the city in order to move forward. The public hearing may be advanced by Spring 2011, allowing residents and all parties to voice their opinion to the City of Vancouver. City Council will take all opinions and concerns regarding everything from increased traffic, parking, rezoning, residential units, commercial space etc into account before moving forward. In addition, the downtown Vancouver Burrard Gateway Building Project will ask for Vancouver condo high-rise towers that exceed current height restrictions in the area. Currently, the downtown Vancouver height restriction is 466 feet, and the proposed Burrard Gateway condo tower will be 48 storeys, which is above the 466 ft restriction. As Burrard Bridge is a gateway in and out of the downtown core, the high-rise tower will provide a great landmark building when entering the community. The architect, Jim Hancock explains that this is a great gateway project for the downtown Vancouver neighbourhood. If approved in 2011, the Downtown Vancouver Burrard Gateway building project will take 4 years for construction, with an estimated completion date around 2015 to 2016. The presales Vancouver condos at Burrard Gateway condominium towers will begin a year or so before the completion date and will launch a wide variety of floorplans catered towards sustainability, functionality and affordability.

The Urban Design Concepts of Vancouver’s Burrard Gateway Real Estate Development Proposal

Spectacular downtown Vancouver Burrard Gateway Proposal for new skyscrapers and office buildings.The Burrard Bridge enters downtown Vancouver askew to the regular angle of the downtown street grid. The urban design concept of Burrard Gateway Vancouver is to locate a landmark higher building at an axial view from the Burrard Street Bridge approach, an alignment that carries significant visual power and allows the landmark to anchor the entrance into the downtown core. The proposed changes for the proposed Burrard Gateway Vancouver real estate development: Allow consideration for a single higher building of generally 500’ at the Downtown Toyota site (1290 Burrard Street) to mark the axial view from the bridge arrival and to stand out as the dominant landmark in addition to allowing consideration of slightly increased height beyond existing policy heights for other sites along Burrard Street without diminishing the strength of the axial view.
