We would like your feedback on a rezoning application at 3609-3687 Arbutus St. The proposal is to allow for the development of a 6-storey residential building. The zoning would change from RS-1 (single detached houses and duplexes) to CD-1 (comprehensive development) District. This proposal includes:

  • 116 secured market rental rental units (with 24 units secured as below-market rental housing)
  • Floor space ratio (FSR) of 2.53
  • Floor area of 7,760.6 sq. m (83,534 sq. ft.)
  • A maximum height of 22 m (73 ft.)
  • 74 vehicle parking spaces and 227 bicycle parking spaces

The application is being considered under the Affordable Housing Choices Interim Rezoning Policy.


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.



Virtual open house: September 8 to 28, 2020

    It would be great to see some kind of retail/restaurants uses on the ground floor along Arbutus as well. Was this considered?

    DJ Asked 3 days ago

    The Affordable Housing Choices pilot program allows for only residential uses in order to be compatible with surrounding single family or multi-family development. Commercial uses would be permitted under the Secured Rental Policy in areas zoned for mixed use – in nearby areas such as Kerrisdale, this would be on streets where commercial uses are currently permitted- along west 41st east of West Boulevard or portions of West Boulevard itself etc.
