East of Main, and North or 7th seems to be the Live/Work hotspot in the city. Another new development was announced recently. Onni has released a future scheme that still needs to be approved (though it isn't a request for re-zoning so the approval should come easily). This development will consist of 209 units on a seven storey building facing East 1st Ave and a six storey building facing Great Northern Way.
This development will sit close to the future Emily Carr University campus, so it could be a great new investment opportunity. More details should be announced once it has approval.
