There are plans for a 10 story residential building to rise up to the south completing the vision of four towers at Vancouver Center. That building however is unlikely to rise up above the 8th floor of Vancouver Center 3. There is also a possibility that the developer will scale back the structure if they can not get the light gauge steel structure seismically approved. In that case a shorter 6 floor tower will go up and there will be no effect on the views at ‘Viewpoint.’
Keep in mind when considering an 8th floor south-facing condo that the views could suffer a partial or complete blockage if the 10 story structure goes as planned. The 9th-11th floor should be unaffected as the new building will be short enough to stay below the ninth floor of this building.
There is also plans for a mid-rise building to cover all of Block Ten to the north. All of the plans I have seen thus far are for structures with less than 8 floors so views to the north appear to be protected as well. The good news continues as that structure is planned to feature a grocery super market which is about the only thing missing in lower Downtown.
*Updated 12-12-2018, Plans for Block Ten are now at 11 floors. This will likely effect the views of north facing units in Viewpoint.
*Updated 12-18-2018, Plans for Vancouver Center 4 are scaled down to 6 floors, southern views at Viewpoint will be unaffected.
