A modest rental housing building has been proposed for a site near SkyTrain’s Renfrew Station in East Vancouver.

Ventana Construction Projects has submitted a rezoning application to turn 2810-2830 Grandview Highway — near the southeast corner of the intersection of Grandview Highway and Kaslo Street — into a new 69-ft-tall, six-storey mixed-use building.

The proposal, designed by Musson Cattell Mackey Partnership, envisions 57 rental residential homes, with 20% of the residential floor area assigned to moderate income households under the municipal government’s Moderate Income Rental Housing Pilot Program.

The unit mix is 14 studio units, 23 one-bedroom units, and 20 two- and three-bedroom units.

Four of the units, varying from three three-bedroom units and a single two-bedroom units, will be two-storey townhouses with laneway frontage and access.

Residents will have access to a 3,100-sq-ft rooftop amenity space, which could have a kids play area and urban agriculture opportunities.

Approximately 12,000 sq. ft. of retail will occupy the ground level, with storefronts along Grandview Highway.

Overall, the building will have a floor area of 78,103 sq. ft. on its 16,104-sq-ft site, giving it a floor space ratio density of 3.12 times the size of its lot.

A single underground level will contain 41 vehicle parking stalls.
