Vancouver city council unanimously approved Tuesday a heritage revitalization agreement to protect the 1930s Hollywood Theatre on West Broadway and allow a six-storey mixed-use building to be constructed on the balance of the site.
The company, 4184 Investments, Ltd., says that that the theatre – which closed in 2011 when the building was sold – will be restored to its former glory, and included a comprehensive operational plan in its development application.
The operating plan says, “We will re-introduce The Hollywood Theatre back into Vancouver’s consciousness by creating and operating a beautifully renovated, state-of-the-art performing arts centre dedicated to bringing the creative arts to the local community.”
The developer is adding an adjoining six-storey building with 4,423 square feet of ground-floor commercial space and five storeys of market residential units above, comprising 40 condos named “The Residences at Hollywood.” There will also be two levels of underground parking for residents.
