The City has received a revised application to rezone 1290 Burrard and 1281 Hornby Street from DD (Downtown) District to CD-1 (Comprehensive Development) District. The proposal is for a mixed-use development as follows:

    • along Burrard Street, a 14-storey office tower, including a 3-storey automotive dealership;
    • a proposed floor space ratio (FSR) of 13.33; and
    • a maximum height of 525.7 ft. from base plane to top of parapet (the General Policy for Higher Buildings has identified this site as a location for a higher building).

Changes from the previous submission (dated June 15, 2011) include:

    • an increase in the floor space ratio (FSR) from 11.8 to 13.33;
    • an increase in the total number of residential dwelling units, from 619 units (including 538 market and 81 rental units) to 810 units (including 723 market and 87 rental units);
    • an increase in the number of parking spaces, from 802 to 813; and
    • refinements to the design of the residential towers, and a revised design for the office tower.
