“Landa Global to develop luxurious tower at 1810 Alberni Street,” by Peter Meiszner, January 11, 2018; https://urbanyvr.com/landa-global-1810-alberni-denman:

“Vancouver-based Landa Global has acquired a prominent corner at Denman and Alberni in the West End, with plans for a 21-storey luxury condominium tower, with affordable housing units on the lower floors.

The upcoming tower, at 1810 Alberni Street, will have 36 high-end, luxury units on the upper floors, and 24 affordable market rental housing units on the second and third floors.

There will also be 3,906 sq. ft. of commercial retail space on the ground floor. . . .

The building will replace an existing one-storey retail building currently home to Ciao Bello Italian restaurant, a bike rental shop, and the Blind Sparrow restaurant.”

Note: later sources state that the address of the new building would be 1818 Alberni Street: 1818 Alberni by Landa Global; http://vancouver4life.com/1818-alberni-landa-global/.
