Wesgroup wants new Sapperton building to be taller

The addition of another floor for an office building in Sapperton was being considered by city council Monday.

Wesgroup Properties was issued a construction permit for a seven-storey building on the Brewery District site last March, but are now asking for an eighth floor. The lion's share of the building would house offices for TransLink administration and its police service.

The building was to have 225,000 square feet of floor space but the zoning allowed for an additional zoning for another 29,000. Wesgroup says there has been a lot of demand for more office space, and the company is now proposing to build the additional floor and wants an amendment to its development proposal.
