Birmingham and Wood Architects has applied to the City of Vancouver for permission to propose the following through a Heritage Revitalization Agreement:

    • relocate, restore and convert an existing one-family dwelling heritage building to a two-storey plus basement multiple conversion dwelling containing three dwelling units and one secondary suite on the north lot;
    • develop a three-storey plus basement one-family dwelling adjacent and to the south on the newly subdivided lot;
    • a total of five dwelling units on this site;
    • a total Floor Space Ratio (FSR) of 1.05, approximately 11,607.35 square feet;
    • an overall building height of approximately 29.83 feet on the north lot and 30.32 feet on the south lot; and
    • attached two-car garage in the heritage building and attached one-car garage in the one-family building, having vehicular access from Trimble and the lane.

Under the site’s existing RS-1 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 April 20, 2018, to be considered in the staff review. However, comments will be considered up until the date of decision.
