I can’t find 3185 N Vancouver. Is it the Red Cross building or the parking lot north of Cook St?
By the submission history (Solterra Strata) it looks to be the empty lot on Williams in front of the Baptist Church. Not sure why the change of address but the project scope + team look to be the same.
Oh, it must be 3185 N. Williams.
The original Strata address was 3138 N Vancouver, despite fronting N Williams, because the lot was purchased from the Church, who had consolidated most of that block to a single address (that of the Church).
I imagine the building will get a N Williams address if it’s ever built.
“Garages on 1st floor. No parking proposed.” Hmmm…
