Shato Holdings seeks rezoning at corner of Cambie Street and West 12th Avenue
Shortly after theGeorgia Straight went to press on September 26, Shato Holdings was scheduled to appear before the Urban Design Panel at Vancouver City Hall for its proposed rezoning of much of the block at the southeast corner of Cambie Street and West 12th Avenue. The company owns the White Spot eatery located there.
The plan calls for 138 residential units in buildings ranging from six to eight storeys high. Shato has also applied to develop 20,000 square feet of commercial space to replace the existing 16,000-square-foot restaurant.
Shato’s managing director, Ron Toigo, told the Straight by phone that if the application is approved, the company will move a heritage house to another part of the site. He added that a new White Spot might be included in the project, depending on how the development proceeds.
Toigo also mentioned that the creation of the Canada Line along Cambie Street was a major factor behind the company’s decision to proceed at this time. However, he said there are no plans to redevelop Shato’s head-office site across the street from the Canada Line’s King Edward Station.
