Mallen Gowing Berzins Architecture, Inc. has applied to the City of Vancouver for permission to develop a four-storey commercial use building, all over one level of underground parking, having vehicular access from the lane.  The proposal includes the following:

  • first to second floor   : Manufacturing uses;
  • third to fourth floor    : Office uses
  • a total floor space ratio (FSR) of a maximum 3.0 (approximately 24,585.0 sq. ft.);
  • an overall height of approximately 60.00 ft.; and
  • providing a total of 30 parking spaces.

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