We would like your feedback on a rezoning application at 1749-1769 E 33rd Ave. The zoning would change from RS-1 (Residential) district to RR-2B (Residential Rental) district.

The RR-2B district allows for:

  • a 5-storey apartment building where all units are secured as market rental; and
  • a floor space ratio (FSR) up to 2.2.

The application is being considered under the Secured Rental Policy (Section 2.4 Rezonings in Low-Density Transition Areas).

On December 14, 2021, Council approved amendments to the Secured Rental Policy to allow simplified rezonings in low-density areas near shopping, public transportation and other amenities. Learn more about the Secured Rental Policy and the engagement process and outcomes. The Secured Rental Policy helps deliver on key objectives of the larger Housing Vancouver Strategy.

If approved, this site's zoning will change to RR-2B. Any development on the site would be regulated by that District Schedule and accompanying design guidelines. This approach differs from a site-specific Comprehensive Development (CD) District rezoning. In comparison, this approach allows for a simplified rezoning process and provides greater clarity and consistency on the types of new secured rental buildings that may be built in eligible low-density areas.

The specific form of development (building design) will be reviewed through a future Development Permit process. Application drawings will be available for viewing and comment at that time.

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.
