We would like your feedback on a rezoning application at 5455 Balsam St. The proposal is to allow for the addition of a 14-storey infill residential building on this site, with retention of the existing 14-storey residential building including 88 rental residential units. The zoning would change from RM-3 (Multiple Dwelling Residential) District to CD-1 (Comprehensive Development) District. This proposal includes:

  • 145 secured rental residential units
  • A floor space ratio (FSR) of 3.63
  • A gross floor area of 8,537.2 sq. m (91,894 sq. ft.)
  • A building height of 39.62 m (130 ft.)
  • A total of 142 underground vehicle parking spaces and 312 bicycle parking spaces

The application is being considered under the Secured Rental Policy.

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.
