A rezoning application has been submitted Nexst Properties to the City of Vancouver to redevelop 3235-3261 Clive Avenue — a mid-block site currently occupied by five single-family dwellings — into two residential buildings.

Designed by DYS Architecture, the proposal envisions a six-storey north apartment building along the building’s Vanness Avenue frontage and a separate three-storey south building for a row of townhouses along the edge of Clive Avenue.

There will be 63 apartment units, with the unit mix established as two studio units, 41 one-bedroom units, 16 two-bedroom units, and four three-bedroom units. Five additional units will be townhouses, bringing the total number of homes in the proposal to 68.

Two underground levels will host 68 vehicle parking stalls.

Altogether, the project creates a total floor area of 50,479-sq-ft on its 22,435-sq-ft site, giving it a floor space ratio density of 2.25 times the size of its lot.

The densities are permitted under the city’s Joyce-Collingwood Station Precinct Plan. However, considering the proposed development’s site close proximity to a SkyTrain station, the density of the project is quite modest.

Under the plan, tower heights are only permitted for sites immediately adjacent to the station, including two prominent sites that are set to be Westbank projects: a 30-storey residential building has already been approved, and the developer has a proposal to replace the YMCA building with a 32-storey residential building. Both buildings have commercial uses on their lower floors.

Lower densities, such as mid-rises and low-rises, radiate outwards from the core of the precinct.
