Approval of Form of Development: CD-1 (642) - 4188 Yew Street (Block A) and 4189 Yew Street (Block C and D) - Arbutus Village


The current zoning was approved for this site in 2011, pursuant to which the CD-1 By-law was enacted in 2016, to permit a mixed-use development with residential units, retail and office uses.

Blocks A and B, located on the eastern portion of the site, are currently under construction following the issuance of Development Permits in late 2017 and early 2018. Blocks C and D, the western portion of the site, are currently in the process of pulling a Development Permit.

The text amendment for this site was presented to Council at the July 18, 2018 Public Hearing. Council referred discussion and decision on this item to the Regular Council meeting on July 24, 2018, as Unfinished Business. At the Regular Council meeting on July 24, 2018, Council approved an amendment to the existing CD-1 (642) to increase the residential floor area, including an increase in the number of market and social housing units. Council also approved in principle, the form of development for these lands. By-law was enacted on July 24, 2020 (By-law 12746).

The attached Motion is therefore recommended to Council on September 15, 2020.


THAT the form of development for this portion of the site known as 4188 Yew Street and 4189 Yew Street be approved generally as illustrated in the Development Application Number DPMA-2018-00665 and DP-2018-00896, prepared by Dialog Design, and stamped “Received, Community Services Group, Development Services”, on April 1, 2020, provided that the Director of Planning may impose conditions and approve design changes which would not adversely affect either the development character of the site or adjacent properties.
