Heritage Commission Hopes To Preserve Gastown Charm

The Vancouver Heritage Commission is getting involved in the development plans for the proposed Cadillac Fairview office building at 601 West Cordova. With heritage buildings on either side of the 24-storey tower, the Vancouver Heritage Commission wants to ensure the historic character of Gastown is preserved, even though the tower doesn't technically fall within the 'Gastown Historic' boundaries. Admittedly, a 24-storey shiny glass office tower would look wildly out of place wedged between two of Vancouver's most interesting heritage buildings - the Landing Building and Waterfront Station.
