The property is currently improved with a 64,722 SF, two-storey car dealership constructed circa 1975, that is owned and operated by Mercedes-Benz Canada Inc. C-3A (Commercial District)zoning provides for a wide range of uses as well as residential uses with a maximum achievable density is 3.0 plus 10% for heritage density transfer resulting in a total FSR of 3.30. Height guidelines are to 120 feet; however, there are no view cones and additional height can be achieved with the approval of the development permit panel.

Located within the Fairview Neighbourhood immediately to the south of Downtown Vancouver,the site is located on the Northeast corner of West Broadway and Hemlock Street. This area was once a bustling industrial waterfront area, but has been transformed into a thriving community overlooking the sparkling waters of False Creek and the
downtown skyline beyond. The centerpiece of this flourishing neighbourhood is Granville Island, with its mix of shopping, theatre, industry, education and more. Amenities include numerous schools, parks and recreation centres – rendering the area attractive to both singles and families alike. It is also superbly serviced by transit – with both East-West and North-South bus routes providing easy accessibility.

The Broadway Corridor has also been rumoured to be the subject of the UBC Line Rapid Transit Study being carried out by Translink and the Province in consultation with the City of Vancouver and other partner organizations. The study is evaluating rapid transit options for the Broadway Corridor between Commercial Drive and UBC, which would drastically improve the site's access via public transit.
