We would like your feedback on a rezoning application at 1477 W Broadway. The proposal is to allow for the development of a 39-storey, mixed-use building above the South Granville SkyTrain Station. The zoning would change from C-3A (Commercial) District to CD-1 (Comprehensive Development) District. This proposal includes:

  • 223 rental residential units, 20% at below market rates
  • Commercial retail space on the first and second storeys, including a grocery store
  • 5-storeys of office space within the podium
  • Rooftop amenity space for residential and office access
  • A floor space ratio (FSR) of 12.16
  • A total floor area of 29,240 sq. m (314,732 sq. ft.)
  • A building height of 125 m (410 ft.)
  • 285 vehicle parking spaces and 507 bicycle spaces

The application is being considered under the Metro Core Jobs and Economy Land Use Plan.

In June of 2018, Council adopted the Terms of Reference for the Broadway Planning Program with a set of interim rezoning policies. A moratorium was implemented on rezoning applications in the Broadway Plan area during plan development. A rezoning application for this site is being considered as an exceptional circumstance under the Broadway Plan Interim Rezoning Policy on the basis outlined in the staff report available here. Staff’s consideration of a rezoning application prior to adoption of the Plan could expedite construction by at least six months, and help minimize impacts on circulation and access to the South Granville Station when the Broadway Subway opens.

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.
