We would like your feedback on a rezoning application at 1220-1298 Hastings St. The proposal is to allow for the development of a three buildings (two market strata buildings at 120 ft. height and one social housing building at 80 ft. height). The zoning would change from M-1 (Industrial) District to CD-1 (Comprehensive Development) District. This proposal includes:

  • 55 units of social housing and 152 units of strata-titled housing for a total of 207 units of housing
  • A floor space ratio (FSR) of 6.0
  • A building height of 36.57 m (120 ft.)
  • A floor area of 17,302 sq. m (186,241 sq. ft.)
  • Ground level commercial space below three buildings:
    • Two 12-storey buildings with strata-titled housing
    • One 8-storey building containing social housing
  • 229 vehicle parking stalls and 481 bicycle parking spaces

The application is being considered under the Downtown Eastside Plan and the Rezoning Policy for the Downtown Eastside.

This application is accompanied by a concurrent rezoning application for 560 Raymur Ave. While these are separate rezoning applications, the Downtown Eastside Plan requires that rezonings for these sites deliver a minimum of 20% of all housing units to be social housing. As such, these two separate applications are proposing to consolidate their 20% social housing requirement to be delivered within one building at 1200-1298 E Hastings St. As such, these two applications are tied and will be processed together.

An in-person community open house was held on June 24, 2019 from 4:30 to 7:00 pm at the Strathcona Public Library (730 E Hastings St).
