The unit mix is 11 one-bedroom units, six two-bedroom units, and five three-bedroom units — all contained within 22,200 sq. ft. of floor area, creating a floor space ratio density of 2.53 times the size of the lot.

A single underground level contains 24 vehicle parking stalls and 42 bicycle parking spaces.

The building will be designed to the city’s Low Emissions Green Buildings path “B” standard, entailing green features such as a high-performance envelope, rooftop and deck gardening plots for residents, enhanced ventilation and energy recovery, and onsite rainwater management collection.

Records show the property was acquired for $9.16 million in July 2017, and the latest assessment indicates the land is now worth $9.009 million and the 1954-built structure worth $50,000.

The proposal is aligned with the city’s Cambie Corridor Plan.
