City hall sweeping $1.5M tower discount scandal under the rug

Onni’s Charleson.

Vancouver city hall isn’t going to send the Onni development cost levy waiver scandal to an external firm after all. 

Last fall, the developer of the 43-storey Charleson tower in Yaletown was found to have illegally received a $1.5 million break. The developer of the mixed strata condominium/rental should have paid $4.5 million in DCLs, but it got the big discount under a program reserved only for 100% rental towers. The developer-friendly, Vision Vancouver city hall called it a mistake.
