Last week, Vancouver City Council approved rezoning applications for two residential buildings at the southeast corner of the intersection of Cambie Street and West 35th Avenue – next to Queen Elizabeth Park.
Both developments, totalling 124 new homes, were designed by GBL Architects and considered under the Cambie Corridor Plan, which permits residential buildings reaching up to six storeys along this span of the street. Altogether, the buildings replace six existing single-family homes.
This project calls for a six-storey, 66-ft-tall building with 65 residential units and 98 parking stalls within two underground levels. The unit mix is 29 one-bedroom units, 32 two-bedroom units, and four three-bedroom units.
With 63,230 sq. ft. of floor area on a 25,914-sq-ft site, the building has a floor area 2.44 times the size of its lot (FSR).
On the site immediately south of the aforementioned redevelopment, there will be a new six-storey, 66-ft-tall building with 59 residential units. The unit mix is three studio units, 23 one-bedroom units, 23 two-bedroom units, and 10 three-bedroom units.
There will also be a 7,383-sq-ft privately operated daycare facility, with 4,484-sq-ft of indoor space and 2,899-sq-ft of outdoor space.
A total of 101 parkings stalls will be constructed within two underground levels.
With 65,624 sq. ft. of floor area on a 27,286-sq-ft site, the building has a floor area 2.43 times the size of its lot (FSR).
