In February 2020, Council directed staff to consider rezoning enquiries and applications for social housing sites around the Marine Drive Station for heights and densities beyond those envisioned in the Marpole Community Plan to achieve more affordable housing through the Ashley Mar Issues Report.

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

What's happening?

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

  • Built form guidelines
  • Public realm improvements
  • Archaeological and heritage management
  • Transportation network and utilities
  • Public benefits priorities (such as open space and childcare)

The area analysis resulted in the creation of new Marine Landing Guidelines which should be used to inform future rezoning enquiries and applications as development sites come forward. Specific heights, densities, housing types and tenures, utilities/infrastructure upgrades and any public benefits will be determined through the rezoning process for each individual site, which will also include public consultation.

What's next?

The Marine Landing Draft Guideline engagement period has now closed. Staff will be reviewing comments and incorporating feedback into the final guidelines for a Council date in Winter 2021. If you have any feedback or questions about the project, please email the Marpole team. We will post any upcoming Council dates on this webpage in coming weeks once available
