Public Hearing to reconvene June 30, 2021 at 6:00 pm

Henriquez Partners Architects has applied to the City of Vancouver for permission to develop the following on this site:

  • A 11-storey, mixed-use building, containing 60 social housing units, a 340-student elementary school and a 65-space childcare centre
  • A proposed height of 38.86 m (127.49 ft.)
  • A floor space ratio of 0.89 (10,645 m² / 114,582 ft.)
  • Parking to be located in the existing Coal Harbour Community Centre, supplemented by a proposed underground level for building services and bicycle storage
  • Designed for certification under the Passive House and LEED Gold standards

Under the site’s existing CD-1 zoning, the proposed use is “conditional” so it may be permitted. However, it requires the decision of the Development Permit Board. A separate amendment to the zoning by-law, RZ-2020-00063, is proposed to increase the height by 8.86 m, the residential floor area by 1,303 , and the number of permitted social housing units.

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.


Online Public Hearing: June 15, June 29, and June 30 2021
