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


We would like your feedback on a revised rezoning application at 495 W 41st Ave. The proposal is to allow for the development of a 14-storey mixed-use building with additional height for a rooftop amenity space. The zoning would change from C-2 (Commercial) to CD-1 (Comprehensive Development) District. This proposal includes:

  • 99 secured rental residential units
  • Three floors of commercial office and retail space
  • A floor area of 9,366 sq. m (100,812 sq. ft.)
  • A floor space ratio (FSR) of 6.37
  • A building height of 45.7 m (150 ft.)
  • 65 vehicle parking spaces and 186 bicycle parking spaces

The application is being considered under the Cambie Corridor Plan.

This is a revised application from a previous proposal submitted on December 17, 2020. Key changes from the previous version include:

  • Additional job space in an all-commercial podium
  • A podium height reduction from 65 ft. to 50 ft.
  • Reduction in the number of residential rental units
  • Reduction to the overall proposed density (FSR)
  • Increased amenity spaces for the rental units
  • Refinements to the overall massing, public realm setbacks, and form of development

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.

Note: Fly-through model is of the original submission

    Vancouver's Urban Forest Strategy calls for "protecting and expanding the urban forest in our city." The declared Climate Emergency Action Plan "Big Move 6" calls for "nature-based carbon sequestration." What is the intention for expansion of the urban forest on the 495 West 41st site?

    MED asked about 1 year ago

    The Cambie Corridor Plan anticipates the Oakridge Municipal Town Centre will develop over time into a high-density, mixed-use neighbourhood with a variety of housing types, job spaces, community amenities, and a high quality public realm.  There is one small tree currently on site, and this proposal will contribute to Vancouver’s urban forest by adding six new street trees on the ground level, in addition to 16 ornamental trees and large shrubs in outdoor amenity areas on upper floors.
