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.

The mods are probably throwing a fit like Donald Duck right about now.
Will be nice to have a breakfast joint in my neighbourhood, though I don't expect the atmosphere will be anything like the former converted garage. Not a very car-friendly destination, but very walkable.

Based on my last few dining experiences here, the atmosphere was most of what Pluto's had going for it. Still it was a fun place back in the day.
After 33 years on Cook Street, Brun Dahlquist is getting ready to pack up Pluto’s Diner — and that famous neon sign — and rocket north to Quadra Street Village.
He expects to open in late April in the former San Remo Restaurant space at 2709 Quadra St., just off Hillside Avenue.
It was converted initially to the Armadillo Restaurant and operated a short time before Dahlquist and partner Robert Chung took over and changed the name to Pluto’s. Chung retired a year ago.
