Three 1950s-built low-rise apartment buildings in the Kerrisdale area of Vancouver could be replaced with a new mixed-use redevelopment.
McFarlane Biggar Architects & Designers has submitted a development application to redevelop the site at 6020 East Boulevard — the southeast corner of West 44th Avenue and East Boulevard — into a new 45-ft-tall, four-storey building.
There will be 47 residential units, with the unit mix consisting of 12 one-bedroom units, 18 two-bedroom units, 16 three-bedroom units, and one four-bedroom apartment. Eight of the three-bedroom units are townhouses facing the laneway.
The existing structures currently have 42 apartments, which means the proposed redevelopment will create a marginal net increase in homes.
The ground level facing East Boulevard will be utilized as nine retail units totalling 8,831 sq. ft. of retail space.
Two underground levels will accommodate about 120 vehicle parking stalls.
A total of 70,600 sq. ft. of new floor area will be created on the 28,200 sq. ft. lot, giving the redevelopment a floor space ratio density of 2.5 times the size of its lot.
According to BC Assessment, the combined assessed values of all three properties is about $47 million.
