We would like your feedback on a rezoning application at 650 W 41st Ave (Oakridge Centre). The proposal is to increase building heights above those approved in the Oakridge Design Guidelines (2018), ranging from increases of 1 m to 30 m to allow up to 9 additional storeys. The proposed changes include changing building form such as tower floor plate size; converting strata apartment floor area to rental floor area; and adding new office space. The zoning changes would amend the existing CD-1 (1) (Comprehensive Development) District. This proposal includes:

  • 775 new housing units, including 319 additional market rental units and 94 moderate income rental units
  • 377,260 sq. ft. of new office space
  • Increase in floor space ratio (FSR) from 3.71 to 4.10
  • Residential floor area of 281,593 sq. m (3,031,042 sq. ft.)
  • Non-residential floor area of 187,345 sq. m (2,016,565 sq. ft.)
  • Increase maximum heights for Buildings 2, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 and the northeast office building
  • Increase exclusions from floor area for balconies and amenity areas
  • Increase permitted height for mechanical appurtenances

The application is being considered under the policy framework of the Issues Report on Intensification of Large Sites to include Moderate Income Rental Housing and the Cambie Corridor Plan.

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.
