Pennyfarthing Development Corporation and Rositch Hemphill Architects have submitted a rezoning application to turn four single-family homes bordering the Heather Street Lands — the old RCMP headquarters — into a pair of 57-ft-tall, four-storey buildings.
There will be 65 homes, including 25 one-bedroom units, 33 two-bedroom units, and seven three-bedroom units.
A partial fifth storey on the rooftop is provided to create tenant amenity space.
The total floor area is 59,385 sq. ft., creating a floor space ratio density of twice the size of the 29,700-sq-ft lot.
Two underground levels will contain 70 vehicle parking stalls and 139 bike parking spaces.
The form of the development is aligned with the city’s Cambie Corridor Plan, and provides a transition with the redevelopment of the adjacent 21-acre Heather Street Lands, which will consist of 2,300 homes. While this site-wide redevelopment entails a number of low-rise and mid-rise buildings, the tallest towers, reaching up to 24 storeys, are located near the Ash Street project.
