Urban Arts Architecture has applied to the City of Vancouver for permission to develop this site with a 14-storey, mixed-use building. The proposal includes the following:

  • 172 units of Social Housing
  • Social Service Centre and Retail
  • An approximate Floor Space Ratio of 7.0
  • An approximate floor area of 9,135 m2 (98,177 sq. ft)
  • An approximate height of 43.3 m (142 ft.)

Under the site’s existing Downtown-Eastside/Oppenheimer District (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 held an extended online question and answer (Q&A) period in place of an in-person open house for this project.

    How would someone apply to purchase one of these units if this building is approved? Would the housing providers mentioned (Land Trust, Lu'ma Native Housing Society and Atira Women's Resource Society) be selecting the tenants or would their be a another party involved?
