Marianne Amodio and Harley Grusko Architects Inc.has applied to the City of Vancouver for permission to retain and restore this existing mixed-use building with retail units on the first storey, strata dwelling units on the second storey and to add a third storey with market rental units and to add a new multiple dwelling infill building in the rear of the site.

The proposal includes the following:

    • interior and exterior alterations to the existing building;
    • a total FSR of 2.34 (approximately 18,582 sq. ft.); and
    • surface parking with vehicular access from the rear lane.

Under the site’s existing MC-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 July 31, 2019, to be included in the staff review.  However, comments will be considered up until the date of decision.
