A low-rise residential building has been proposed to replace seven single-family homes near the southwest corner of East Broadway and Nanaimo Streets in East Vancouver.

Local developer Bucci and Rositch Hemphill Architects have submitted a rezoning application for the land assembly properties at 2542-2570 Garden Drive & 2309-2369 East 10th Avenue – about four blocks east of Commercial-Broadway Station.

With a floor area of 58,899 sq. ft. on the 22,000-sq-ft lot area, the development is aiming to achieve a density of 2.65 times the site area (FSR).

This proposal is being considered under the Grandview-Woodland Community Plan.
