We would like your feedback on a rezoning application at 560 Raymur Ave. The proposal is to allow for the development of a mixed-use building. The zoning would change from I-2 (Industrial) to CD-1 (Comprehensive Development) District. This proposal includes:

  • Ground level manufacturing space
  • 5 storeys consisting of 59 strata residential units
  • A floor space ratio (FSR) of 2.94
  • A floor area of 7,226 sq. m (77,780 sq. ft.)
  • A building height of 21.2 m (69.55 ft.)
  • 97 vehicle parking spaces and 154 bicycle parking spaces

The application is being considered under the Downtown Eastside Plan and the Rezoning Policy for the Downtown Eastside.

This application is accompanied by a concurrent rezoning application for 1220-1298 E Hastings St. While these are separate rezoning applications, the DTES Plan requires that rezonings for these sites deliver a minimum of 20% of all housing units to be social housing. As such, the applicant is proposing to consolidate their 20% social housing requirement to be delivered within one building at 1200-1298 East Hastings Street. As such, these two applications are tied and will be processed together.

An in-person community open house was held on June 24, 2019 from 4:30 to 7:00 pm at the Strathcona Public Library (730 E Hastings St).
