We would like your feedback on a rezoning application at 1066-1078 Harwood Street. The proposal is to allow for the development of a 36-storey residential building (which include roof access, mechanical and outdoor area). The zoning would change from RM-5A (Residential) District to CD-1 (Comprehensive Development) District. This proposal includes:

  • 287 rental units (with 231 market rental units and 56 below-market rental units)
  • A floor space ratio (FSR) of 13.1
  • A floor area of 21,049 sq. m (226,573 sq. ft.)
  • A building height of 96.3 m (316 ft.)
  • Six levels of underground parking with 146 vehicle parking spaces, 11 accessible spaces, 532 Class A bicycle parking spaces and 15 Class B bicycle parking spaces.

The application is being considered under the Criteria for 100% Secured Rental and Below-Market Housing as an Alternative to Inclusionary Social Housing in the Burrard Corridor.

NOTE: A rezoning application was submitted in 2017 for the same site. The application was withdrawn in 2021.

In response to COVID-19 (Coronavirus), we will be holding an extended online question and answer (Q&A) period in place of an in-person open house for this project.


Virtual open house: May 10 to May 31, 2021

    If approved, when would construction (including demolition) begin? (even a 'guesstimate' would be appreciated)

    noahone asked 6 days ago

    The rezoning process typically takes 12-15 months from the time of submission to Council referral. Following that, the applicant must complete their conditions of enactment and obtain the necessary permits, including demolition permits. The process of enactment usually takes a number of months which is driven by the applicant’s timeline, followed by demolition, and then securing the necessary development permits. As such, the demolition for a typical project would need to account for rezoning (12-18 months) plus enactment (8-12 months) and then demolition. Please treat these are very broad ‘guestimates.’
