Revised Application (May 6, 2024)

The City of Vancouver has received an application to rezone the subject site from C3-A (Commercial) District to CD-1 (Comprehensive Development) District. The proposal is to allow for the development with three purpose built rental towers at 36, 37 and 43 storeys above a retail base. This proposal includes:

  • 1,044 rental units with 10% of the floor area for below-market rental units;
  • A floor space ratio (FSR) of 8.27;
  • A maximum building height of 135.5 m (444 ft.) with additional height for rooftop amenity space and mechanical appurtenances;
  • Commercial retail space at grade, including a grocery store;
  • Commercial space within the podium levels;
  • Childcare facility (37-spaces) dedicated turnkey to the City;
  • A public plaza running parallel to the SkyTrain station (20,000 sq. ft.) connected to publicly accessible outdoor pace on top of the retail base (12,000 sq. ft.); and
  • 438 vehicle parking spaces and 2,011 bicycle spaces.

This is a revised application from a previous proposal submitted on November 23. 2023. Key changes from the previous version include:

  • Adding four storeys to Tower A;
  • Adding one storey to Towers B and C;
  • Converts one level of office space to residential in Tower A;
  • Increasing the overall proposed density to 8.27 FSR;
  • Increasing the residential unit count to 1044 units; and
  • Includes a dedicated childcare facility (37-spaces).

This application is being considered under the Grandview-Woodland Community Plan. The application requests consideration of height and density in excess of the existing policy.


Frequently Asked Questions:

  1. The heights are described as 36, 37, and 43 storeys above a retail base which is confusing. Can you clarify the proposed building heights?

    The Grandview-Woodland Community Plan notes that “at key anchor points within the site, heights range from 12 to 24 storeys above the retail plinth [base]”. This rezoning application proposes three towers at heights of 36, 37, and 43 storeys above a retail base. Proposed building heights from the ground level are 37, 38 and 44 storeys.

  1. This proposal goes beyond the direction of the Grandview-Woodland Community Plan, why is this application even being considered?

    Rezoning applications that are submitted to the City with all required materials and associated fees must be processed. The rezoning process includes public notification, feedback, presentation to appropriate advisory bodies (i.e. urban design panel), and a full staff review. The review is summarized in a report for City Council that describes the application, summarizes all the feedback, recommends to refer the application to a public hearing and whether to approve or refuse the application. City Council decides on rezoning applications.

    More detail on the rezoning application review process is available here, including information on how to provide input directly to Council after an application has been referred to a public hearing.

Application drawings and statistics on this webpage are posted as-submitted to the City. Following staff review, the final project statistics are documented within the referral report.


Rezoning Application (November 23, 2023)

The previous rezoning application, submitted on November 23, 2023, consisted of a mixed-use development with three purpose built rental residential towers at 35, 36 and 39-storeys above a retail base. This proposal includes:

  • 981 rental units with 99 units secured at below market rates;
  • A floor area of 77,312 sq. m (832,178.6 sq. ft.);
  • A floor space ratio (FSR) of 7.87;
  • A max. building height of 129.5 m (425 ft.);
