323 Alexander St: Amendments to the regional context statement official development plan

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

Vancouver is in a housing crisis – more than 2,000 people across the city are experiencing homelessness. People are suffering both physically and mentally. Creating safe, warm housing for people experiencing homelessness in our community continues to be a top priority for the City of Vancouver.

Temporary modular homes are located on vacant and underused sites across the city and are typically on site for a period up to 10 years.

All of the temporary modular buildings are operating well in neighbourhoods across the city. Residents have a safe place to live and are being connected with the services they need.

The site at 323 Alexander St, with an area of 2,397 sq. m, is being considered as a site for temporary modular supportive housing.

This site is currently designated for Industrial use under the City’s Regional Context Statement Official Development Plan (RCS ODP) By-law. To allow residential use, an amendment to the by-law is required. The amendment would temporarily change the designation of this site from Industrial to General Urban, while the property is occupied with Temporary Modular Housing. This proposed amendment will be presented for Council’s consideration later this year.

In response to COVID-19 (Coronavirus), an extended online question and answer (Q&A) period will be held in place of an in-person open house for this project during the Development Permit stage. Please check back for dates.
