MA+HG Architects has applied to the City of Vancouver for permission to develop the following on this site:

  • A 11-storey mixed-use building
  • Including a total of 117 residential units, consisting of 70 social housing units and 47 market rental units
  • Other uses proposed include commercial retail, educational office and cultural theatre space
  • A floor space ratio of 7.0
  • One level of underground parking accessed from Cordova St.

The applicants have submitted the following relaxations for the City’s consideration:

  • The proposal seeks an increase in building height, from approximately 125’-128.3’, per section 4.6.1 of the DEOD-ODP - sub-area 1 Main and Hastings; and section 10.21A. of the Zoning and Development By-law

Under the site’s existing DEOD zoning, the application is “conditional” so it may be permitted. However, it requires the decision of the Development Permit Board.

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


Virtual open house: November 29 to December 5, 2021
