Revised Rezoning Application - 950 West 41st Avenue (Jewish Community Centre)

The City of Vancouver has received a revised rezoning application from Acton Ostry Architects to amend CD-1 (285) to allow for redevelopment of the Jewish Community Centre (JCC) site at 950 West 41st Avenue.

The revised application includes additional residential housing and the removal of the 13-storey replacement Louis Brier Home and Hospital. This has resulted in the following changes:

    • Increase in maximum building height from 80 m (263 ft.) to 84.8 m (279 ft.);
    • Increase from 160 to 299 residential units;
    • Increase from 693 to 783 vehicle parking spaces; and
    • Increase in floor space ratio (FSR) from 4.47 to 4.59.

The revised proposal is for a phased redevelopment with:

  • A 9-storey replacement Jewish Community Centre, including:
    • recreation space, including pools and gyms;
    • ground-level commercial space;
    • cultural arts, auditorium, and theatre space;
    • non-profit office space;
    • an Early Childhood Education Centre, including 104 private daycare spaces; and
    • a maximum height of 37 m (121 ft.).
  • A residential component including:
    • a 26-storey and 24-storey building above a podium;
    • 299 residential units provided through a community land trust; and
    • maximum heights of 84.8 m (279 ft.) and 75.7 m (249 ft.).

Underground parking, with 783 vehicle parking spaces and 430 bicycle parking spaces, is proposed. The revised application proposes a total floor space ratio (FSR) of 4.59.

The application is being considered under the Oakridge Transit Centre Policy Statement.

A community open house was held from 5-8pm on April 30, 2018 at the Jewish Community Centre, 950 West 41st Avenue, with the applicant team and City staff available to answer questions.

This application has been approved by Council at Public Hearing on September 6, 2018.
