Does anyone know anything about a 130 unit residential project somewhere on 8 St SW that GWL Realty is planning?

Not a lot of info on it so far, but it's slated for this location across from the CBE building. I looked at the DP some time ago, and it's 25 storeys/85 metres. Pretty average looking tower...almost a carbon copy of Genco's Myraid proposal.

Thanks. That location makes sense. Single story retail looks out of place for that block. Apparently a building permit application was filed in November for this project.
 
That would be a great place for a tower that size. I recall there was also retail at grade, so they don't lose any retail out of it.
 
This area of 8th could use some additional people along it. With Redstone, it should become more lively. Hopefully trigger the city to look at some of the excessively thin sidewalks along 8th...

There is a plan to spruce up 8th street. Not sure where it's at these days, but it does involve improving those crummy sidewalks that are all different widths.

The 8th street SW Master Plan is complete. More information here:

No public renderings. I took a look at it down at City Hall a while back. It's very similar to Genco's Myriad proposal
