This application was approved by Council at Public Hearing on December 9, 2021.


We would like your feedback on a rezoning application at 5590 Victoria Dr. The proposal is to allow for the development of a six-storey mixed-use building. The zoning would change from C-2 (Commercial) District to CD-1 (Comprehensive Development) District. This project was previously considered under the Kensington-Cedar Cottage Community Vision however the application does not meet the ownership requirements of Social Housing as described by the Vancouver Zoning and Development Bylaw. The application is now being considered under the Secured Rental Policy and will meet the affordability requirements of Social Housing wherein at least 30% of the dwelling units are occupied by households with incomes below housing income limits, as set out in the current “Housing Income Limits” table published by the British Columbia Housing Management Commission. This proposal includes:

  • 54 secured rental units with 30% of the units occupied by households with incomes below housing income limits
  • Two commercial spaces at grade, office and retail
  • A floor space ratio (FSR) of 3.37
  • A gross floor area of 4,381.15 sq. m (47,158.30 sq. ft.)
  • A building height of 22.25 m (73 ft.)
  • 25 vehicle parking spaces (including 1 car share space) and 145 bicycle parking spaces

The application is being considered under the Secured Rental Policy.

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.
