The City of Vancouver has received a revised application to rezone 4175 West 29th Avenue (St. George's Senior School) from RS-5 (One-Family Dwelling) District to CD-1 (Comprehensive Development) District. The proposal is to allow for a long term masterplan for this existing Secondary School with a total floor space ratio of 0.7 (FSR).

The revised proposal was developed by the applicant team to allow for the anticipated new campus buildings while accomodating continuous operation of the senior school through construction phases. The revised proposal responds to feedback from the public, UDP and previous staff review.


The proposal is for a campus master plan to establish form, use, and density of the property. A set of design guidelines will be developed through the process to guide development over the next decades, without defining each individual building. Each building will require a separate development permit.

 

Key changes from the original application include:

  • New overall site plan;
  • Taller buildings, including boarding facilities, to be located closer to the centre of the site rather than spread out along the perimeter;
  • Increased setbacks from property lines;
  • New traffic circulation patterns to minimize congestion; and
  • A phasing plan is no longer included in the application.
 

A community open house was held from 5:00 - 8:00 PM on Tuesday, March 28th, 2017 at 4175 West 29th Avenue with the applicant team and City staff available to answer questions.
