Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

We would like your feedback on a rezoning application at 855-865 W 10th Ave. The proposal is to allow for the development of a 12-storey office building. The zoning would change from CD-1 (137) District to a new CD-1 (Comprehensive Development) District. This proposal includes:

  • A floor area of 7,114.3 sq. m (76,580 sq. ft.)
  • A floor space ratio (FSR) of 6.12
  • A building height of 47.6 m (156.3 ft.)
  • Commercial retail space at grade
  • 82 underground vehicle parking spaces and 60 bicycle spaces

The application is being considered under the Metro Core Jobs and Economy Land Use Plan.

In June of 2018, Council adopted the Terms of Reference for the Broadway Planning Program with a set of interim rezoning policies. A moratorium was implemented on rezoning applications in the Broadway Plan area during plan development. However, Appendix B provides several exemptions for instream proposals. The application at 855-865 W 10th Ave had received a response from staff supporting consideration of the proposal within three years of the adoption of the interim policies and, as such, the application satisfied interim policy and can be considered in advance of the adoption of the Broadway Plan.

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.

    Please let me know if these are strata suites or rental.

    This proposal is for an office building with accessory retail use. There are no residential units proposed. At this time, the office space is not yet confirmed as strata-titled or rental.
