Feb 27 2020, 7:04 pm

A redevelopment near the northwest corner of the intersection of Kingsway and Slocan Street could create a 43-ft-tall, four-storey residential building with up to 50 homes.

Gradual Architecture has submitted a development application to the City of Vancouver for the site at 4869 Slocan Street, replacing four single-family dwelling structures.

The site in Norquay Village is located within a short walking distance from SkyTrain’s 29th Avenue Station.

The proposal calls for 40 condominium units, with a unit mix of three studio units, nine one-bedroom units, 18 two-bedroom units, and 10 three-bedroom units. This does not include the 10 rental lock-off units that are proposed, adding to much-needed rental housing stock.

“As there are various styles evident in the neighbourhood, this proposal introduces a contemporary style with flat roof overhang, horizontal cement board, and authentic brick cladding,” reads the design rationale.

“This proposed design also reflects the style of the residential multi-family building across the street.”

A single underground level accessed from the laneway accommodates 40 vehicle parking stalls and 95 bike parking spaces.

With a total floor area of about 35,000 sq. ft., the project has a floor space ratio density of 1.95 times the size of its 17,900-sq-ft lot.
