Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link



We would like your feedback on a rezoning application at 1837-1849 E 11th Ave and 2631 Victoria Dr. The proposal is to allow the development of a 6-storey secured rental residential building and a 4-storey revitalized heritage house. The zoning would change from RM-4 (Residential) to CD-1 (Comprehensive Development) District. This proposal includes:

  • 136 secured rental units
  • A floor space ratio (FSR) of 2.89
  • A site area of 2704.6 sq. m (29,112 sq. ft.)
  • A building height of 19.8 m (65.0 ft.)
  • 43 vehicle parking spaces and 270 bicycle parking spaces

The application is being considered under the Grandview Woodland Community Plan.

Please note a notification postcard mailer circulated inadvertently referenced "commercial retail at grade" included in this proposal. There is no commercial retail component being proposed. Staff are aware of this issue and an updated mailer has been circulated.

Please note: This is a new rezoning application for this site. A previous application had been submitted on December 18, 2017 (view the previous application) and was approved by Council on July 10, 2018 (view the council report). That application has been rescinded and a new application has been submitted with the following key changes from the previous application:

  • Removing the strata use and proposing a 100% secured rental use
  • Reducing the proposed height from 11 storeys to 6 storeys
  • Reducing the proposed density from 3.6 FSR to 2.89 FSR
  • Reducing the proposed number of units from 138 to 136

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.

    I live one block from the proposed development. I have looked for the CD-1 bylaw for this site. Apparently, it isn't official yet, or at least it's not listed with the other CD-1 bylaws. What are the terms for this CD-1 zoning? Where can they be found? Without knowing that, it's difficult to know what the proposed changes will mean for our neighbourhood.

    Thank you for your question. 

    The rezoning site is currently zoned RM-4

    A previous application at this site was approved by Council at public hearing on June 26, 2018 and the draft zoning for the previous application is available here. Approval at public hearing does not immediately enact a proposed CD-1 By-law as there are number of rezoning conditions that need to be met prior to by-law enactment. In this case, the applicant has withdrew their previous application prior to enactment and the site remains zoned RM-4. 

    The applicant submitted a new proposal for the site as a 6-storey secured rental building with the relocation and refurbishing of a heritage home on-site.  More detail on the proposal including the form of development, heritage retention, etc. can be found on the applicants Open House Boards, or the application submission booklet.

    The application is being reviewed against City policies including the Grandview-Woodland Community Plan (see section 6.7.2) and should the application be referred to Council a draft CD-1 By-law will be included in the referral report.

    Mailer to my house indicates that there is commercial retail on the ground floor, but this page makes no mention of it. Will there be retail on the ground floor or not?

    Ian Holliday asked 4 months ago

    Thank you for taking the time to submit your question. The proposal does not include commercial retail on the ground floor and the reference to this on the postcard mailer is inaccurate. The proposal is for a 6-storey rental residential building with the relocation and refurbishing of a heritage home on-site. The information on the Shape Your City page is accurate and we will be recirculating an updated mailer to clarify. 

    Thank you for pointing out the error to us. 

    Kind regards
