Site 8 Lonsdale Avenue North Vancouver - City Council Dilberates
A proposed four hundred foot condo high-rise tower and subsequent master-planned community with great amenities for the Lower Lonsdale North Van neighbourhood has seen both accolades and disapproval among current residents in the area and city planners. Now, Site 8 as it has become known as is officially not going to happen.

The City of North Vancouver announced in early March, that Site 8 by Millennium Group Lower Lonsdale 400’ condo tower residences will not get the approval that they had wanted. At the foot of Lonsdale Avenue, Site 8 proposed by Millennium Group real estate developers had a tough sell but added a lot of great additions to the amenities and community facilties as part of their plan to transform the heart of the Lonsdale Quay area in North Vancouver.

Environmentally Friendly North Vancouver Townhomes are available through Ralph Maglieri Remax for April 2009 at the Contemporary North Shore Homes called GreenView Living

Original Plan Proposed by Millennium Group for Site 8 Lonsdale High-Rise Condo Tower
The original proposal by the Millennium Group propsed not only a 410 foot condominium tower at the foot of Lonsdale Avenue on the North Shore, but also a new waterfront home for the Presentation House Gallery and a floating swimming pool in return for a 36 storey high rise residential tower that would hover above any other condominium project to date. According to the North Shore News, the City of North Vancouver kills the 400’ waterfront condo tower plan at the Lonsdale Avenue foot as the city council cies significant opposition. Heidi explains that the controversial 410 foot condo tower real estate development for Site 8 at the foot of Lonsdale Ave will not go forward. In a 7 to 0 vote, City of North Vancouver council voted unanimously Monday to terminate Millennium Group’s application. While the counsellors regret that there will be no new home for the Presentation House Gallery because of this withdrawal of the 410 foot condo Millennium tower, Site 8 proposale on the North Shore was too high a price to pay for public amenity additions to the Lwoer Londsale area at this time. In addition, parking and transportation issues in the area need to be addressed before another proposal comes forward. Millennium Group estimated that a prposed 410 foot condominium tower at Site 8 would generate some $36.7 million in additional revenue to the City of North Vancouver. In a decreasing scale, at 250 feet that revenue would amount to $15.5 million; a 200 foot condo tower at Site 8 Lonsdale would be $10M, at 150, $4.3 million; and at 75 feet, $2.4 M.

The Next Steps for North Vancouver's Lonsdale Site 8 Development
From the Millennium Group Site 8 proposal for a Lower Lonsdale condo tower twice as tall as the current tallest condominium residence, it is noted that the City of North Vancouver needs to establish limits on density bonsuing. The Council needs to use the redevelopment process to advance the type of amenities that are important to the city and to the Lower Lonsdale community at Site 8. Millennium Group real estate developers is definitely a leading company, but it came out of the proposal that the area needs a larger master-plan development at this time. With the Maritime Center, this willb e the major tourist hub in the Lower Mainland and the City of North Vancouver needs to maximize its opportunities here. The Site 8 Lonsdale Avenue community is an important site and the City does not want to jump at the first proposal that comes forward. The City of North Vancouver council will add Site 8 at the foot of Lonsdale Avenue to its 2009 work plan to develop and refine options for the future real estate development of the site. At this time, the Lonsdale Avenue Site 8 Millennium Group condo proposal has been axed and therefore, Site 8 will remain as Lonsdale Quay markets and the seabus terminal.
