Another mid-rise residential development proposed for the intensifying Cambie Street Corridor will be assessed by members of the public at an open house next month. A rezoning application was submitted by Acton Ostry Architects in December, seeking permission to convert the northwest corner of West 49th Avenue and Cambie Street from a RT-1 (Two-Family Dwelling) District to CD-1 (Comprehensive Development) District.
The 10-storey building proposed at 6409-6487 Cambie Street would include commercial retail space at grade, live/work units in the rear laneway, office space on levels two and three, and a 37-space childcare facility on the second floor. The bulk of the building will contain 127 residential units, with 163 underground parking spaces and 306 bicycle spots arranged over two underground floors.
The proposed development site currently consists of four single-detached homes and is located directly across the street from the Langara-49th Canada Line Station. An eight-storey condominium immediately to the north was built in 2015.
The application is being considered under the Cambie Corridor Plan, a City planning instrument that promotes urbanism by encouraging density, walkability, compact neighbourhoods and the provision of amenities.
A community open house has been scheduled for Monday, March 2 from 5:00 to 7:00 PM in the Dayson Boardroom at the Jewish Community Centre of Greater Vancouver (950 W 141st Avenue). An online feedback form is also available.
