The City of Vancouver has won the legal war against a group of people protesting two developments in Yaletown.
In 2011, Brenhill Developments had proposed to replace an affordable-housing complex on Helmcken Street with a 36-storey condo tower, and build more social-housing across the street.
The Community Association of New Yaletown took the city to court earlier this year over a bylaw related to the project, accusing it of not properly consulting the public.
The judge agreed with the residents and chided the city, which appealed.
The battle went all the way to the Supreme Court of Canada.
The city has emerged the winner, simply because it adopted a new re-zoning bylaw.
