32-Story Tower Planned for Hill Street

Last summer, SB Properties overlord Barry Shy announced bold plans for a slew of new projects that would erect high-rise towers in and around Downtown's Historic Core. Earlier this month, the veteran developer officially put words into action, submitting plans for a 32-story condominium tower on a parking lot behind Broadway's popular Ace Hotel. Located at 920 South Hill Street, the building would contain 239 residential units, ground level commercial stalls and a parking garage. Shy has commissioned locally-based David Takacs Architecture to design the project, in addition to his other proposed towers on Broadway and Main Street.

Although currently light on foot traffic, a litany of apartment-retail developments are slated to bring thousands of new residents to the blocks surrounding the proposed tower in the coming years. The half-acre project site sits directly across the street from the Hanover Company's Olympic & Hill apartments, which will be accompanied by three similarly-sized developments on adjacent properties. One block northwest, Vancouver's Onni Group is building a 32-story residential tower at 888 Olive Street.

First Look at Downtown's Ace-Adjacent 32-Story Condo Tower



Prolific Downtown developer has several projects barrelling forward right now, including a 38-story Historic Core skyscraper we just got a look at yesterday; now here's our first gander at his 32-story story tower, set for the site of a parking lot behind the Ace Hotel. The concrete, glass, and stone structure (seen in these renderings from David Takacs Architecture) has had a growth spurt—it was only supposed to be 20 or 21 stories originally—and will have 239 condos and five ground-floor commercial spaces (totaling 5,405 square feet); the land-use rep for the project tells Curbed those spaces are intentionally on the small side in the hopes they'll attract some neighborhood-serving retail and not just restaurants (though they're hoping for those, too).

A bit reminiscent of the SB high rise on Main, but not quite as nice. Maybe break up the pattern on the big faces of the high rise.

Small spaces means coffee and boba instead of restaurants.
