We would like your feedback on the resubmitted rezoning application of the Balfour Block at 906-982 W 18th Ave and 907-969 W 19th Ave. 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; seven 3- to 4-storey townhome buildings. The zoning would change from RT-2 (Residential) to CD-1 (Comprehensive Development) District. The proposal includes:

  • 208 total units consisting of 58 townhouses; 51 market strata residential units; and 99 secured rental units (with 25% of the proposed residential floor area at below-market rates)
  • A floor area of 19,076 sq. m (205,333 sq. ft.)
  • A floor space ratio (FSR) of 1.89
  • Building heights ranging from 11.5 m (37.6 ft.) to 25 m (82.5 ft.)
  • 255 vehicle parking spaces and 502 bicycle spaces

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

This is an updated rezoning application for this site. A previous application had been submitted in January, 2021. The resubmitted application includes reductions in residential units, proposed floor area, and proposed density, as well as changes to the form of development and site layout including the addition of a corner park at 19th Ave and Laurel St.

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.
