A modest rental housing project within a 66-ft-tall, six-storey building has been proposed for Kitsilano in Vancouver’s Westside.
Ekistics Architecture has submitted a rezoning application for the sites at 3084 West 4th Avenue and 2010 Balaclava Street — the southeast corner of the intersection of West 4th Avenue and Balaclava Street.
It will replace 1943-built, one- and two-storey duplex structures.
The proposal, which falls under the city’s Moderate Income Rental Housing Pilot Program, envisions a total of 35 secured rental units, with 20% of the residential floor area dedicated to moderate income households. The unit mix is eight studio units, 14 one-bedroom units, and 13 two-bedroom units.
The total floor area is 21,824 sq. ft., giving it a floor space ratio density of 2.95 times the size of the 7,400-sq-ft lot. A single underground level will contain 15 vehicle parking stalls and 54 bike parking spaces.
