A rezoning application has been submitted to the city to redevelop a mid-block site near the north end of the Oak Street Bridge in South Vancouver.

According to the proposal by W.T. Leung Architects, two existing buildings reaching two and three storeys with 43 apartment units at 8636-8656 Oak Street could be redeveloped into two six-storey, 60-ft-tall buildings with 91 secured market rental units.

There will be a total floor area of 58,690 sq. ft. on the 23,500 sq. ft. lot, giving the redevelopment a floor space ratio (FSR) density of 2.5 times the size of the property.
