    I have read through the plans and transportation information and something is not clear to me - if there are plans to have retail space below the rental properties, how will you support that with parking/loading spaces for customers or suppliers? 29 parking spaces for 33 apartments with one loading spot for a store doesn't seem sufficient to me, and there is currently no stopping on 12th or Knight/Clark for parking on the south and east sides of the street. Most small produce, grocery or drug stores would not want to move into this space without ample parking, and we already have more than enough cannabis stores in this neighbourhood. Finding street parking is already difficult in our neighbourhood.

    Neighbourhood family asked over 1 year ago

    This rezoning application will be reviewed by Engineering staff to determine if the proposed number of residential, visitor, commercial, and loading spaces meet the requirements of the Vancouver Parking By-law.  While the ground-floor businesses will be local-serving, for those within walking or biking distance, staff recognize that providing sufficient on-site parking will also be essential.

    How much of this will be subsidized housing for families? 3 bdrm Apts, etc. We own a duplex in the neighbourhood, and are so excited for the coming density! Any idea what businesses are interested in taking the storefronts?

    David Mongar asked over 1 year ago

    The proposed housing units are all market rental housing, with rents that will be determined at the time of the building’s completion (there are no subsidized units proposed).  The proposed unit mix is 17 one-bedroom units and 16 two-bedroom units, for a total of 33 units.

    Specific tenants for the future ground-floor retail spaces have not yet been chosen.  Should this application be approved, the applicant will select which businesses will occupy those retail spaces at later stages.

    Why is the development so small? Considering the housing crises should the developer not be required to maximize the available living space for the land size.

    Christy asked over 1 year ago

    The site is within the scope of the Grandview-Woodland Community Plan, which provides policy guidance for potential development, including the height and density that can be considered.  While the Plan anticipated a maximum height of four storeys at this location, the applicant has submitted a proposal for six storeys, for the provision of ground-floor retail spaces, and rental housing.  Staff will consider feedback from the public and Urban Design Panel as part of reviewing the application’s request for additional height.

    Just wondering the retail space is grocery shop for sure?

    Karen asked over 1 year ago

    The applicant has not yet selected any specific tenants for the future development.  The drawings in their application package indicate ground-level retail spaces, with only suggestions for future potential businesses.
