  • 109 social housing units
  • Floor space ratio (FSR) of 11.73
  • A net floor area of 7,183 sq. m (77,313 sq. ft.)
  • Building height of 56.4 m (185 ft.)
  • 4 vehicle parking spaces and 129 bicycle parking spaces

The application is being considered under the Kensington-Cedar Cottage Community Vision.

The original rezoning application, received in October 2021, proposed that all 109 social housing units with supports be rented at the shelter component of income assistance.

Following staff review of the proposal, as well as of comments and feedback received during the rezoning application's Virtual Open House and comment period, the affordability mix was adjusted to: approximately 50% at the shelter component of income assistance (currently $375/month), and 50% at rents-geared-to-income (RGI) for households earning up to 50% of the BC Housing's Housing Income Limits (HILs) (currently max $719/month).

Revised shadow studies are provided here. They show the proposed building’s shadows cast at 10 am, noon, and 2 pm. The shadow studies previously shown in the Application booklet were offset by one hour, and showed shadows at 11 am, 1 pm, and 3 pm.

To provide the public with additional time to review the application materials, the virtual open house Q&A period was extended by one week to December 12, 2021.
