Terra Firma Design Ltd. has applied to the City of Vancouver for permission to perform interior and exterior alteration to retain and convert this existing three storeys one family dwelling to Multiple Conversation Dwelling with two units, and an addition of new two storey one family dwelling infill building with attached one car garage, providing a total of two parking spaces (including one off-street surface parking) at the rear, having vehicular access from the lane.

The proposal includes the following:

    • a total floor space ratio of 0.84 approximately (3,412.53.7 sq.ft.); and
    • an overall height of approximately:
      a) 35.0 ft. for the principle building at the front, and
      b) 24.98 ft. for the infill building at the rear.

Under the site’s existing RT-5 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 17, 2018, to be included in the staff review. However, comments will be considered up until the date of decision.
