Kitsilano could soon lose another gas station.

A mixed use, 11-storey development is proposed to replace the Shell gas station at the corner of West Broadway and Arbutus Street.

According to the Vancouver Courier, Bastion Developments has not yet submitted a rezoning or development application to the City of Vancouver, but a post on its website offers some details and a rendering of the proposed 88,391-square-foot concrete building, called “Cassis.”

The property where the gas station sits is highly desirable, as it’s across the street from a future SkyTrain station on the Millennium Line extension from VCC-Clark to Arbutus.

According to Bastion’s website, “Cassis is one of the few potential development sites ideally located in the heart of Kitsilano surrounded by superb shopping, dining, cultural destinations, popular beaches, the new Arbutus Greenway and more.”

Last year Chevron Canada put five gas stations on the west side up for sale including gas sites at West Broadway & Alma and West 4th & MacDonald.
