The site of Onni Group’s future three-tower Gilmore Place development is now cleared, according to urbanYVR. The first phase of the development will be home to three towers, the largest measuring 64 storeys – taller than any other housing tower west of Ontario.

The remaining two towers are 43 and 51 storeys, totaling 1,550 units across all three buildings. A podium on the sixth floor will connect the three towers.

The IBI Group-designed development will include 500,000-square-feet of retail space and 1 million-square-feet of office area.

Future phases of the Gilmore Place project will see a total of ten towers surrounding Gilmore SkyTrain station.
