On May 31, 2018, the City of Vancouver received an application to rezone 1535-1557 Grant Street from RM-4 (Multiple Dwelling) District to CD-1 (Comprehensive Development) District, to permit the development of a 5-storey residential building over one level of underground parking. The application is being considered under the Grandview-Woodland Community Plan.

A community open house was held from 5:00-8:00 pm on Tuesday, September 11, 2018 at Britannia Secondary School (1001 Cotton Drive), with City staff and the applicant team available to answer questions.
