The proposal includes:

    • one 8-storey building containing social housing
  • 55 units of social housing and 152 units of strata-titled housing for a total of 207 units of housing

This application is accompanied by a concurrent rezoning application for 560 Raymur Avenue. While these are separate rezoning applications, the DTES Plan requires that rezonings for these sites deliver a minimum of 20% of all housing units to be social housing. As such, these two separate applications are proposing to consolidate their 20% social housing requirement to be delivered within one building at 1200-1298 East Hastings Street. As such, these two applications are tied and will be processed together with the same open house and UDP date.


A community open house was held on June 24, 2019 from 4:30 - 7:00 pm at the Strathcona Public Library (730 East Hastings St.) in the Wo Soon Mary Lee Chan Room. City staff and the applicant team were available to answer questions.
