Henriquez Partners Architects on behalf of Westbank has applied to the City of Vancouver for permission to develop on the site, consisting of:

  • A 28-storey residential building containing 171 dwelling units on a five-storey, mixed-use podium
  • A height of 103.11 m (338.29 ft.)
  • A floor area of (50,627.71 m² / 544,952.15 sq.ft.)
  • Three levels of underground parking with 556 vehicle parking spaces

Under the site’s existing CD-1 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), we held an extended online question and answer (Q&A) period in place of an in-person open house for this project.

    This is something that myself and my family would be visiting everyday. Everything seems spot on, but where would the restrooms be???? I believe any future developments need to take this into serious consideration so restrooms can be offered no matter where you are in vincity of the running loop. It needs to be easily accesible, yet conspicuous in a way. I believe this is very important to the comfort for every visitor regardless of where they live or work. Thank you,

    Thanks for your comments. The park is well served by publicly accessible washroom facilities.  There are a number of dedicated public washrooms that serve the park as well as dozens of washrooms within the mall itself which are publicly accessible. In the scope of DP6, at the stage area, there are 3 public washrooms directly accessible from the park beside the stage. In the DP5 scope we have two public washrooms adjacent to the running track at the Community Garden. In the DP1 scope there is a public washroom under Building 4 directly adjacent to the water play area and close to the loop.  

    The Civic Centre also provides washrooms that are accessible to the public. Within the mall the Food Hall in DP5 has over 30 additional washrooms easily accessible from the Commons Park area as well as more stalls in a number of locations on level 1.

    there seems to be a huge reduction of actual green space as what was originally proposed back a few years ago. Why are they proposing such a big change? seems we are giving them the world and they keep cutting back on their promises.

    Thank you for your comments and question. This is the sixth (6th) development permit for the Oakridge project. The green space is park land in the amount of 9.0 acres. The 9.0 acres has not been reduced. This development application, however, does not provide all of the 9.0 acres. Subsequent portions of park will be provided in the other development applications. The design of the park and determination of its size has been carried out in consultation with parks throughout the review and approval process.
