Summary of Revisions:

Initial Rezoning Application (May 24, 2013)

The initial rezoning application was submitted to the City of Vancouver to rezone 333 East 11th Avenue (currently addressed 275 Kingsway) from C-3A (Commercial) District to CD-1 (Comprehensive Development) District. This initial proposal was for:

    • a 13 storey (plus communal rooftop amenity space, family play area) mixed-use development with commercial at grade and mezzanine level and market rental units above;
    • a total of 195 market rental units;
    • a height of 42.2 m (138.5 ft.);
    • a density of 8.77 FSR, with a floor area of 14,899 sq. m (160,376 sq. ft.); and
    • a total of 132 underground parking stalls for commercial and residential uses

First Revision (October 22, 2013)

On October 22, 2013, a revised rezoning application was submitted to the City. The changes in the form of development were in response to comments received from the public as well as comments from the Urban Design Panel. The key design changes from the previous submission include:

    • provision of an 8.6 m wide vertical opening to the atrium to enable views into and out of the atrium;
    • provision of a 3 m setback from the edge of the building for the uppermost two residential levels;
    • provision of three south-facing outdoor amenity decks in the vertical opening and removal of roof top amenity and family play area and relocation of these spaces to other parts of the building;
    • an increase in the number of storeys (from 13 to 14), however, overall height of the building remained the same as initial submission, with reduced floor to ceiling height on each level

As a result of these design changes, there was a small reduction in the propsoed density (from 8.77 to 8.7), unit count (from 195 to 194), and number of parking stalls (from 132 to 127).

Second Revision (January 15, 2014)

On January 15, 2014, a second revised rezoning application was submitted to the City. The revised submission was a result of the applicant’s desire to adjust the unit mix in order to meet the criteria for Development Cost Levy (DCL) waiver under the Vancouver DCL By-law. The key changes include:

    • elimination of three-bedroom units;
    • an increase in total number of units from 194 to 202;
    • a reduction in parking stalls from 127 to 106, while still meeting Parking By-law requirements;
    • removal of commercial floor area from the mezzanine level;
    • a decrease in the setback at the uppermost two residential levels from 3 m to 2.2 m; and
    • the overall FSR has been slightly reduced from 8.7 to 8.63.

The proposed height remains the same as last revision. There are no other significant exterior design changes.
