Office Building Proposed For Corner Of Broad & Victoria

Office Building(Broad St)When I was walking to an interview at Slate Gallery at 2078 Halifax St. this morning I spotted a sign posted at the south-west corner of Victoria Ave. and Broad St. announcing the site was under consideration for the construction of an office building. I don’t have a ton of information other than that Lark Group out of Surrey, B.C. is the developer, and that a development application has been made to City Hall.

The above image isn’t the best quality, but it gives a sense of what the building is supposed to look like. Along with a proposed office building on the north-east corner of Rose St. and 12th Ave. (pictured after the jump), there’s speculation that it might be a candidate for SGI’s new head office. But that’s all that’s out there at present is speculation. And the Brandt Group of Companies which manufacture heavy machinery and farm implements has been reported as being the anchor tenant for the Rose St. project.

  1. Who will stand up for the Impark Lot that will be destroyed by this monstrosity?

    Seriously though, that building looks bloody ugly.

  2. Sure, it’s made of glass and steel and ugly, but I don’t mind this development. It’s modestly sized, doesn’t destroy any heritage buildings, and brings a new commercial real estate firm into town to compete with the Hill Companies. Hopefully the city stands its ground on things like parking capacity, street-level retail, wind-reduction and various other elements of the Downtown Plan.

  3. Truthfully, I’m happy to see something built on a parking lot, and I agree with each of your points. I just wish we could get some interesting buildings built.

  4. Smiling, happy people will walk thru its doors and lobby every day, bringing prosperity to one and all. This has got to be a win-win for everyone involved. God bless.

    Isn’t there a restaurant there now, and Trifon’s?

  5. From the discussion I’ve seen about the proposal it wouldn’t necessarily uproot the Rooftop restaurant which is west of the building on Victoria Ave. (behind that large tree on the boulevard in the drawing), nor Triffons which is south of the building on Broad. It would be primarily centred on the surface parking lot. But in saying all this I don’t have a ton of concrete information on the building so how far along this proposal is I don’t know.
