Rezoning applications


Rezoning Application - 505 Smithe (CD-1 Text Amendment)

The City of Vancouver has received an application to amend the CD-1 (442) (Comprehensive Development) District By-law to allow for an increase in permitted floor area by 500 sq. feet.

The amendment would allow the Sina Medical Centre to add mezzanines to their existing space. The additional floor area would be entirely contained within the existing building.

This application is being considered under the Metro Core Jobs & Economy Plan which allows consideration of increased density for employment-generating uses.

This application was approved at Public Hearing on January 23, 2020.
