NSDA Architects has applied to the City of Vancouver for permission to develop on this site a new seven-storey, mixed-use building, consisting of:

  • 114 social housing units (3rd to 7th floors)
  • Retail/office and a community amenity space (ground and 2nd floors)
  • One level of underground parking, providing a total of 20 parking spaces having vehicular access from the lane
  • A total floor space ratio of 4.38 (approximately 7,445 m²)
  • A maximum geodetic building height of 25.76 m

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