We would like your feedback on a rezoning application at 4949-5255 Heather St and 657 W 37th Ave (Heather Lands). The proposal is to rezone the site from CD-1 (80) and CD-1 (52A) to a new CD-1 (Comprehensive Development) District. The proposal is for a master-planned redevelopment of the 21-acre site with buildings between 3 and 28 storeys, a childcare facility, a school, a park and public open space, office space, retail space, and a cultural centre. This proposal includes:

  • 144,874 sq. m (1,559,407 sq. ft.) of market residential housing, equal to approximately 1,672 units
  • 26,892 sq. m (289,464 sq. ft.) of secured market rental housing, at least 25% of which is Moderate Income Rental housing. This is equal to approximately 400 units, including 100 moderate income rental units
