Urban West Architecture Inc. has applied to the City of Vancouver for permission to develop two one-family dwelling buildings on this site, consisting of:

    • a principal two-storey, one-family dwelling:
      • proposed height is approximately 31 feet; and
      • proposed floor area is approximately 2,907 square feet;
    • a secondary one-storey plus basement, one-family dwelling with an attached garage, providing two parking spaces having vehicular access from the lane:
      • proposed height is approximately 25 feet;
      • proposed floor area is approximately 1,975 square feet; and
    • total proposed Floor Space Ratio is 0.60 (approximately 4,925 square feet).

Under the site’s existing RS-1B zoning, the application is “conditional” so it may be permitted; however, it requires the decision of the Director of Planning.

We welcome your written comments (letter or e-mail) on this development application. Comments should be received on, or before August 23, 2017, to be included in the staff review. However, comments will be considered up until the date of decision.
