The latest proposal, apparently already approved, is for a 16 story building to house the homeless.

Well, that means there will still be radio people at the address!

For anyone interested, here is what was built on CHQM's old studio location at 1134 Burrard Street:
https://www.google.ca/maps/@49.27979,-123.128144,3a,90y,116.8h,121.73t/data=!3m4!1e1!3m2!1sHSmnkopzHbvkGKAw4FqJfQ!2e0

Quite a change since I worked there (1971-72). The medical building to the right was built right after I left (you could hear the pounding of the pilings on the air), and replaced a great old two story house from the 1920s that was shared by some hippies.
