Former premier Mike Harcourt supports the Building Community Society in opposing the rezoning application of the 105 Keefer area for a 13-storey condo development.
“It’s a huge bulky nine-story building right beside the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Garden of the Chinese Cultural Centre,” he said.
“Development should re-energize and revitalize Chinatown, but not overwhelm it. This building dwarfs all of the heritage buildings of the Chinese community along Pender Street and it’s just too much.”
