Ten months after 485 West 35th Avenue’s rezoning application was approved by Vancouver City Council, a development permit application has been submitted for the project.

GUD Group’s application for the 8,800-sq-ft lot at the northeast corner of the intersection of Cambie Street and West 35th Avenue, just west of Queen Elizabeth Park, calls for a new six-storey, stepped building replacing a single-family home.

There will be 16 condominiums, with a unit mix of seven one-bedroom units, three two-bedroom units, five three-bedroom units, and one four-bedroom unit.

The building is stepped back at each floor on the laneway side to reduce its scale, providing a transition to the future lower density, off-arterial development in the area.

Residents will have access to a sixth-floor rooftop private roof garden complete with landscaping and an outdoor kitchen area.

A single underground level will accommodate 20 vehicle parking stalls.

The building’s total floor area is 21,700 sq ft, giving it a floor space ratio density of 2.5 times the size of the lot.

Similarly scaled redevelopments on adjacent sites along Cambie Street are nearing completion or planned.
