We would like your feedback on a rezoning application at 906-982 W 18th Ave and 907-969 W 19th Ave (the Balfour Block). The proposal is to allow for the development of a 6-storey rental building; a 6-storey condo building with a rooftop amenity and a childcare space on the ground floor; six 4-storey and two 3-storey stacked townhome buildings. The zoning would change from RT-2 (Residential) to CD-1 (Comprehensive Development) District. The proposal includes:

  • 241 total units consisting of 84 townhouses; 57 market strata residential units; and 100 secured rental units (with 25% of the proposed residential floor area at below-market rates)
  • A floor area of 20,447 sq. m (220,093 sq. ft.)
  • A floor space ratio (FSR) of 2.16
  • Building heights of 11 m (37.5 ft.) to 25 m (82.6 ft.)
  • 334 vehicle parking spaces and 630 bicycle parking spaces

The application is being considered under the Cambie Corridor Plan and the Rezoning Policy for Large Sustainable Developments.

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.
