In February 2020, Council directed staff to consider rezoning enquiries and applications for social housing sites around the Marine Drive Station area beyond the heights envisioned in the Marpole Community Plan to address Council’s affordable housing priorities (PDF).

In October 2020, Council also supported intensification of job space in key areas, including Marine Landing, through the Employment Lands and Economy Review (ELER) (PDF). Intensive employment sites in Marine Landing that deliver 100% job space projects with a multi-storey light industrial space may be considered for greater heights and/or densities than identified in the Marpole Community Plan and Cambie Corridor Plan.

To align with these recent Council directions, we are starting an area analysis for Marine Landing to support a growing population and employment hub as it continues to evolve into a vibrant community envisioned in the two community plans. The analysis will focus on the following area-wide considerations:

  • Public realm improvements
  • Built form and urban design guidelines
  • Public amenities needs, such as childcare
  • Upgrades to utilities and transportation systems

The area analysis will reinforce the vision and aspirations for this growing community and help inform rezoning enquiries and applications as development sites come forward in the future. Specific heights, densities, housing types and tenures, and utilities/infrastructure upgrades will be determined through enhanced rezoning processes for each individual site, including public consultation.
