Bosa Properties and Listel Hospitality Group partner to redevelop storied Vancouver hotel
Bosa Properties Inc. and the Listel Hospitality Group have announced a partnership for the redevelopment of the Listel Hotel Vancouver, Vancouver, B.C.
The hotel is located at 1300 Robson Street, Vancouver, B.C., V6E 1C5. The partnership, structured as a 50/50 joint venture, will deliver urban renewal, and address the growing need for both hotel accommodations and purpose-built rental homes in Vancouver.
The redevelopment project, designed by Henriquez Partners Architects, will transform the current 129-room hotel, renowned for its art-filled guest rooms and meeting facilities in Vancouver’s West End, into an urban destination. The new development will feature a podium and single tower with a restaurant, 174 hotel rooms and 126 purpose-built rental homes; hotel rooms will occupy the lower portion of the tower and rental homes will be situated on the upper floors.
The project marks a significant departure from traditional redevelopment approaches, addressing demand from the Vancouver tourism sector and the housing market by integrating a hotel and rental housing within a single development.
“We’re very excited to announce our partnership with the Listel Hospitality Group, an experienced operator that brings a rich history of successfully managing hotels and restaurants across Vancouver and Whistler,” says Wayne Vickers, vice-president partnerships, Bosa Properties.
LHG is a division of the Japanese-based Listel Japan, which first came to British Columbia in 1987. Since opening its doors in 1992, the Listel Hotel Vancouver has become an integral part of the West End community and a cornerstone of the Greater Vancouver hotel market; a role it will continue to play upon completion.
To pave the way for this redevelopment, the existing Listel Hotel Vancouver will close its doors in November 2024, with demolition work commencing immediately afterward. Construction of the new development is scheduled to begin in September 2025, with an anticipated completion date in 2028.
