A development application for a new five-storey, mixed-use building has been submitted for 4506 Rupert Street in Vancouver’s Renfrew-Collingwood neighbourhood.

The site is located at the southeast corner of East 29th Avenue and Rupert Street, which includes a large lot that has been vacant for over a decade, and a small lot with a single-family dwelling.

City council approved the rezoning application for the proposal in a public hearing in July 2020.

GBL Architects’ newly submitted development application calls for 55 rental homes, including 51 secured market rental units, with a unit mix of 16 one-bedroom units, 13 two-bedroom units, and seven three-bedroom units. Nine of these units will be townhouses.

Another five units will be live/work units.

The townhouses will face Price Street to the south and the laneway to the east, while the live-work units will face East 29th Avenue to the north and the laneway.

The development also incorporates 4,700 sq. ft. of retail and restaurant space, with frontage along Rupert Street to the west.

A single underground level accommodates 32 vehicle parking stalls and 101 bike parking spaces.

The total floor area is 42,934 sq. ft., providing the building with a floor space ratio density of 2.3 times the size of the 18,671 sq. ft. lot.
