City holds Q&A on view corridors, building heights

More on the issue of building heights and view corridors.  The City will be holding a Q&A session on Monday, in advance of the Council presentation on Thursday.

Here’s the media release on the subject:

Public information meeting on downtown building heights

The City of Vancouver is holding a public information meeting to provide details on two reports concerning downtown building heights that will be considered by City Council next week. The public meeting will be held on:

Monday, January 17 from 7 – 8:30 pm
(Presentation starts at 7 pm, followed by a question and answer session)
Empire Landmark Hotel
1400 Robson Street, Crystal Ballroom, Lobby Level

At the meeting, City staff will review the specifics of the Vancouver Views report, which protects public view corridors and looks at opportunities for limited higher buildings downtown that do not intrude into public view corridors.

Staff will also present information on the Historic Area Height Review report which implements Council’s decisions on building heights in specific areas of Gastown, Chinatown, Victory Square, and the Hastings and Main Street area.

City Council will consider the recommendations in the two reports at a Council meeting on January 20, which is open to the public.
