The Vancouver Alpen Club is pushing forward with a redevelopment of its 72-year-old building at the northwest corner of the intersection of Victoria Drive and East 33rd Avenue.
A new development permit application submitted by construction management firm Trillium Projects calls for a new 73-foot-tall, six-storey building at the Alpen Club’s property at 4875 Victoria Drive.
Few details are currently available, but the application shows it would incorporate a new replacement space for the Alpen Club on the ground level and a new replacement Deutsches Haus Restaurant at the building’s corner with the intersection.
Five floors above the ground level will contain rental housing, but the number of units is not indicated.
The proposed total floor area is 90,200 sq ft. There would also be two levels of underground parking.
The redevelopment is being pursued to renew the club’s aging facilities, achieved through a partnership with local developer Townline Homes. The design firm is NSDA Architects.
Much of the property is currently used for surface vehicle parking.
