A modest purpose-built rental housing building is proposed for the southern border of Vancouver’s Renfrew-Collingwood neighbourhood.

Barnett Dembek Architects has submitted a rezoning application for 2735 East 41st Avenue — the northwest corner of the intersection of East 41st Avenue and Rhodes Street, and about one city block’s distance from the bus stops for TransLink’s R4 RapidBus.

The property is currently occupied by a 1980-built, two-storey building containing G&F Financial Group.

According to the application, the four-storey building will have 32 secured market rental homes, with a mix of two townhouse units opening up to Rhodes Street, two studio units, 10 one-bedroom units, 12 two-bedroom units, and six three-bedroom units.

There will also be 6,100 sq. ft. of total retail and restaurant space facing East 41st Avenue, split into five commercial units.

An underground level will contain 25 vehicle parking stalls and 80 bike parking spaces.

The total floor area is 35,669 sq. ft., creating a floor space ratio density of 2.48 times the size of the 14,382-sq-ft lot.

This application is being considered under the city’s Secured Market Rental 100 Policy.
