Revised Application (December 20, 2021)

We would like your feedback on a rezoning application at 1728 Alberni St and 735 Bidwell St. The proposal is to allow for the development of two residential towers (30-storeys and 39-storeys) including a six-storey mixed-used podium. The zoning would change from RM-5C (Residential) to CD-1 (Comprehensive Development) District. This proposal includes:

  • 387 strata residential units
  • A floor space ratio (FSR) of 10.47
  • A floor area of 37,856 sq. m (407,483 sq. ft.)
  • A building height of 90.9 m (298 ft.) for the east tower and 117.3 m (385 ft.) for the west tower
  • 476 vehicle parking spaces, 22 visitor parking spaces, 2 commercial parking spaces, and 848 bicycle parking spaces

This is a revised application from a previous proposal submitted on December 23, 2020. Key changes from the previous version include:

  • Reduction of east tower building height by five storeys, bringing the overall building height to 90.9 m (298 ft.)
  • Refinements to the overall massing and form of development to limit shadow impacts
  • Reduction to the number of strata residential units and commercial space
  • Removal of the childcare facility
  • Reduction to the overall proposed density (FSR)

The application is being considered under the Rezoning Policy for the West End and West End Community Plan.

Rezoning Application (December 23, 2020)

The original rezoning application, submitted on December 23, 2020, consisted of a development of two strata residential towers (35-storeys and 39-storeys) including a five-storey mixed-used podium (previously described as a 30-storey east tower and 34-storey west tower over a five-storey mixed-use podium) with:

  • 401 strata residential units
  • 24-space childcare facility
  • A floor space ratio (FSR) of 10.88
  • A floor area of 39,337 sq. m (423,428 sq. ft.)
  • A building height of 105.23 m (345.24 ft.) for the east tower and 117.30 m (384.8 ft.) for the west tower
  • 499 vehicle parking spaces, 20 visitor parking spaces, 3 commercial parking spaces, 2 childcare parking spaces, and 853 bicycle parking spaces

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