4949 Heather Street - Temporary Modular Housing - DP-2018-00537

UPDATES: Development Permit Issued on August 30, 2018


The Vancouver Affordable Housing Agency (VAHA) has applied to the City of Vancouver for permission to provide Temporary Modular Housing on this site. The proposal consists of:

•  Two three-storey buildings containing a total of 104social housing units (52 units in each building);

•  A Floor Space Ratio of 0.18 (approximately 49,590 sq.ft.); and

•  A maximum building height of 42.3 ft.

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