Rental building proposed at East Vancouver strip mall as new multi-family district emerges

A new development is being planned in the neighbourhood, which has the Renfrew Elementary School on the northeast corner of the junction.

When the project is completed, East 22nd Avenue and Rupert Street would have been transformed into a multi-family district.

The change started a few years ago, when a number of shops on the southwest side of the junction, which included a European bakery and an Asian fish store, were replaced by a low-rise condo building.
