The Development Permit Board approved the application on June 27, 2022, subject to conditions.  A Development Permit may be issued once all conditions have been satisfied. For more information, please see the Prior-to letter under "Application documents"

Cadillac Fairview has applied to the City of Vancouver for permission to develop the following on this site:

  • A major renovation of the existing 29-storey hotel building
  • A maximum building height of 95 m (311.6 ft.) from grade
  • A total floor area of 36,190 m² (389,531 sq. ft.)
  • Two levels of underground parking with 2,152 vehicle parking spaces accessed from Howe Street

Under the site’s existing CD-1 zoning, the application is “conditional” so it may be permitted. However, it requires the decision of the Development Permit Board.

In response to COVID-19 (Coronavirus), we held an extended online question and answer (Q&A) period in place of an in-person open house for this project.

    How many rooms will the hotel have? Is this more, less or the same as the old hotel?

    SEAYVR asked 6 months ago

    Thank you for your question.  The former Four Seasons Hotel had approximately 414 rooms.  The new hotel will have 259 rooms so a reduction of 155 rooms according to the traffic analysis reporting for "trip generation" by Bunt and Associates.
