The Hastings-Sunrise neighbourhood in East Vancouver could see a unique redevelopment that incorporates the heritage facade of an existing building currently located on the proposed development site.

A rezoning application has been submitted by Studio One Architecture to turn the site at 2601-2619 East Hastings Street – the northeast corner of the intersection of East Hastings Street and Penticton Street, across the street from London Drugs redevelopment – into a mixed-used, six-storey building. It will have a height of 71 ft.

There will be about 6,300-sq-ft of retail and restaurant space on the ground level and 47 secured market rental residential units within the upper levels. A total of 42 parking stalls are planned underground.

The 12,000-sq-ft site is currently occupied a one-storey retail building with Spanish-style architecture constructed in 1928.

The redevelopment proposes to retain a portion of the heritage facade, specifically the rear facade on Penticton Street next to the laneway with the current address of 360 Penticton Street.

Altogether, the project will have a total floor area of 48,700 sq. ft., which gives the proposal a floor space ratio (FSR) of 3.75 times the size of its lot.

The City of Vancouver is considering this proposal under the Rental 100 Secured Market Rental Housing Policy.
