We would like your feedback on a rezoning application at 4426-4464 Knight St and 1406 E 28th Ave. 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). The proposal includes:

  • 72 secured market rental units, including 10 live-work units at grade
  • Floor space ratio (FSR) of 3.1
  • Floor area of 5,119.6 sq. m (55,107 sq. ft.)
  • Maximum height of 20.1 m (65.9 ft.)
  • Two levels of underground parking with 29 vehicle parking spaces and 161 bicycle parking spaces

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


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

    My concern is regarding the number of parking spots available for residents in this new complex. With only 29 spots, it is a generous assumption that less than half of the units will have one car to park. As a resident of 28th Ave East, it is already difficult to find street parking outside of our residence, as the townhouses on Knight Street don't have enough parking for the number of vehicles in the complex. How will this be addressed? Will there be 'for residents of 28th Ave only' signs? I have had to call the city and have had multiple cars towed. Please advise.

    This application will be required to meet the minimum requirements of the Parking By-law. This includes parking for residents, visitors, and loading to be provided fully on-site. Lower vehicle parking requirements allow developments to provide parking based on anticipated demand, which enables reduced expenses and subsequent housing costs associated with excessive amounts of vehicle parking.

    The site is located within walking distance of local services such as parks, shops and schools which would reduce potential reliance on private cars. Bus routes and cycling paths are also located within close proximity to the site. This proposal also includes 161 bicycle parking spaces for use by residents.

    What does “secured market rental” mean?

    EastVanGuy Asked 2 days ago

    A secured market rental unit can only be used as rental housing and cannot be sold privately. These units are guaranteed with a legally binding covenant or housing agreement registered on title that restricts the use to rental housing for 60 years or the life of the building, whichever is longer.

    Is it rental units only, or are there units for sale

    Christian Asked 6 days ago

    All of the units within the proposal are secured rental units. These rental units will be secured through a Housing Agreement for the life of the building.
