Neither this nor Blue Diamond will block south-facing views from Imperial Plaza. They are off to the east and west of Imperial PlazaSo the developer renovated the Imperial Palace with that a great view on the South side, then decided to squeeze a new building in blocking that great view and another is on the way, nice!
Here's the Site Plan:
View attachment 61759
There are approved plans for 10 townhomes and 1 tower south of Imperial Plaza, which will be the third phase there. (There's also Blue Diamond at Imperial Plaza, the second phase, which is being built where the words Deer Park United Church appear.)
Some of the area under where the third phase will be had to be built to provide parking and servicing facilities for the first phase. I am not sure how much will be built on top of that at this point. Maybe just enough to cap it all for a while (or maybe some of the towns have been selling as part of the Blue Diamond phase? Not sure.) to seal it off until the next phase goes ahead.
