1150 Cook Street is a proposal for a 15-storey condominium tower with ground floor commercial space along the 1100-block of Cook Street at View Street in downtown Victoria's Harris Green neighbourhood.
The building is planned to rise on the former site of Pluto's Diner, which was situated in a converted mid-20th century service station.
