There is a new proposal to build a modest 80-ft-tall, six-storey, mixed-use development near the northern end of the Oak Street Bridge in Vancouver’s Marpole neighbourhood.
A rezoning application has been submitted by Kunyuan International Group and DA Architects and Planners for the site at 8804 Osler Street — the southeast corner of the intersection of Osler Street and West 72nd Avenue, currently occupied by a 1986-built, two-storey commercial building.

The proposal calls for 38 condominium homes, with a unit mix of 16 one-bedroom units, including four units with a den and nine units with both a den and lock-off. There are also 14 three-bedroom units and eight three-bedroom units, with all multi-bedroom units also consisting of at least one den.
Such homes make these units suitable for larger families and those working from home. Lock-offs could potentially be rented out as well.
Units on the top level will have private rooftop terraces. All residents will have access to common indoor amenity spaces, such as a social room and fitness gym, on the second level, which opens up to a south-facing outdoor garden and child play space.
The building’s ground level will contain 7,400 sq ft of retail and restaurant space.
The total floor area is 49,183 sq ft for a floor area ratio density of three times the size of the 16,100-sq-ft lot. Two underground levels contain 59 vehicle parking stalls and 91 bike parking spaces.
The density and uses align with what is outlined for the area around Ebisu Park in the city’s Marpole Community Plan. This development site is also within close walking distance to the bus routes along Oak Street and Marine Drive.
