133 new homes in three buildings proposed for Cambie Corridor

Dec 2 2020, 4:16 am

A rezoning application has been submitted by Alabaster Homes to redevelop a land assembly of eight single-family homes along the Cambie Street Corridor.

The site at 4992-5138 Ash Street is within a low- and mid-rise area of the city’s Cambie Corridor Plan — wedged between the Heather Lands redevelopment site to the west, and Queen Elizabeth Park to the east.

The proposal, designed by GBL Architects, calls for three buildings — a pair of four-storey buildings, and a single six-storey building — containing a total of 133 condominiums.

The unit mix is seven studios, 39 one-bedroom units, 59 two-bedroom units, and 38 three-bedroom units. This includes ground level units that open up to Ash Street and the laneway.

Residents will have access to 3,800 sq. ft. of indoor amenity space spread over the three buildings, as well as over 11,000 sq. ft. of outdoor amenity space, accessible to all residents, on the rooftops of the two four-storey buildings. Each unit will also have access to private outdoor space.

Two underground levels will provide 185 vehicle parking stalls and 242 bike parking spaces.

The redevelopment also includes a 35-ft-wide setback at the southern end of the development site to establish a public right-of-way for an extension of West 35th Avenue between Cambie Street and Ash Street. This street extension began with the adjacent redevelopment on Cambie Street.

The proposed total floor area is 124,533 sq. ft., creating a floor space ratio density of two times the size of the 57,570 sq. ft. lot.
