City to consider rezoning application for dual-tower, 438-room hotel on site of Park Inn and Fairview Pub
A major new hotel on West Broadway in Fairview, on which public input was sought earlier this year, is under consideration by the City with its rezoning application now submitted.
The proposed site is at 878-898 West Broadway, between Willow and Laurel streets, which is the current home of well-loved live-music venue the Fairview Pub and three-star 117-room hotel the Park Inn.
The hotel, designed by Arno Matis Architecture, is intended to serve both tourists and families visiting the nearby Vancouver General Hospital, with a large proportion of much-needed long-term-stay suites.
The proposal comprises two towers at 13 and 11 storeys, joined by a mixed-use podium. Between them, the buildings will contain:
• 438 hotel units (258 short-term and 180 long-term stay);
• commercial space at ground level;
• a building height of 43 metres (142 feet); and
• 485 underground car parking spaces and 35 bicycle spaces.
