We would like your feedback on a rezoning application at 1290 Hornby St. The proposal is to allow for the development of a 35-storey building. The zoning would change from Downtown (DD) District to CD-1 (Comprehensive Development) District.

On March 11, 2022, the applicant provided an addendum to their December 13, 2018 submission. This addendum forms their updated rezoning application package. The proposal includes:

  • 211 strata-titled residential units
  • 1,243.2 sq. m (13,382 sq. ft.) of cultural amenity space to be owned by the City of Vancouver
  • A floor area of 16,659.9 sq. m (179,332 sq. ft.)
  • A building height of 106.11 m (348.13 ft.)
  • A floor space ratio (FSR) of 11.96
  • 150 vehicle parking spaces and 450 bicycle parking spaces

The most significant changes between the March 2022 submission and the previous December 2018 submission include:

  • Relocation of the elevator core and re-angling of the building to improve residential liveability and building efficiencies
  • Increase in the number of housing units from 159 to 211
  • Additional residential and cultural amenity space floor area
  • Slight reduction in building height

The previous rezoning application included:

  • 159 strata titled residential units
  • 978 sq. m (10,531 sq. ft.) of cultural amenity space to be owned by the City of Vancouver
  • A floor area of 16,165 sq. m (174,000 sq. ft.)
  • A building height of 106.16 m (348.3 ft.)
  • A floor space ratio (FSR) of 10.28
  • 105 vehicle parking spaces and 345 bicycle parking spaces

The application is being considered under the Potential Benefit Capacity in Downtown Policy.

An in-person community open house was held on March 14, 2019. Consultation for this application predated the City’s virtual engagement strategy that was implemented due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
