City Council unanimously approves York Theatre protection!

Reprinted from the Georgia Straight:

Vancouver City Council voted unanimously this morning to save the York Theatre, agreeing to a 100 percent density transfer for the site.

Staff had recommended only a one-third density transfer, which advocates working to secure the theatre’s future said would effectively kill plans to save the venue.

Now all that’s left is for developer Bruce Wall to negotiate a deal with current property owner Paul Phillips, head of Vintage Development Corp., before January 15, when a 120-day protection order from the city expires.

Congratulations to Heather and Deb at the Cultch for their successful appeal to city council. We’re proud of you!
