Kitsilano housing proposal sees “overwhelmingly positive” response

Share Article

The precise unit mix has not been decided on, but the market condominium portion of the project could account for between 10% and 30% — 600 to 1,800 units — of the total number of the units. The remaining units will mostly be rental homes — a substantial quantity that could potentially fulfill as much as a quarter of the City of Vancouver’s 10-year housing strategy of catalyzing 20,000 purpose-built market rental homes between 2018 and 2027. It would also be supported by about 2,000 vehicle parking stalls, while the latest 2019 proposal only envisions providing about 10% of the 6,000 homes with parking — possibly as little as 600 vehicle parking stalls with significantly more density.
