A new market rental housing project could be coming to Vancouver’s easternmost edge near Hastings Park.

Cornerstone Architecture has submitted a rezoning application to turn the mid-block site at 3435 East Hastings – near the northeast corner of the intersection of Hastings Street and Cassiar Street – into a mixed-use building.

There will be 45 secured market rental residential units, 2,700-sq-ft of commercial space at the ground level, and 28 underground parking spaces.

The first floor will be concrete while the remaining floors will have a wood frame. However, the building aims to meet the standard for Passive House certification, which is a building with a sustainable and ecologically-friendly design and is also comfortable and affordable.

Passive House buildings are said to require up to 90% less heating and cooling energy than conventional buildings.

The proposal has a total floor area of 39,500 sq. ft. on its 11,400-sq-ft site, giving it a floor space ratio (FSR) density of 3.14 FSR. Its building height is 68 ft.

This is just one of a growing number of proposed Passive House buildings within the city.
