A rezoning application has been submitted for a 90 x 110 ft, C-3A zoned site at 521-525 West 8th Avenue, just west of Cambie Street (across from Whole Foods). The site is currently comprised of two single-storey retail buildings, one of which is now vacant.
The proposal calls for a nine-storey office building with retail, and includes:
- 60,300 SF of office space
- 2,000 SF of retail space
- Office floorplates ranging from 6,400 to 9,015 SF
- A total density 6.91;
- A building height of 111 ft.;
- 88 parking spaces on 3 1/2 underground levels; and
- 35 bicycle parking spaces
This application is being considered under the Metropolitan Core Jobs and Economy Land Use Plan. The “Metro Core” plan policy has been in place now for almost ten years. The primary purpose the plan was to facilitate rezoning for commercial development, either by restricting residential use, or by allowing greater density for office uses. The site falls within the “Broadway Corridor Choice-of-Use Areas” which allow for increased commercial density by virtue of proximity to transit.
The architect for the project is Musson Cattell Mackey Partnership.
This application is the latest in a recent trend of rezoning applications for office buildings on sites under 10,000 SF which traditionally would’ve been viewed as too small to accommodate larger floorplates and parking requirements.
Here is a construction update for a residential project that is located on a fairly prominent corner across from City Hall at West 12th Avenue and Cambie Street. The Spot is a 125-unit, 8-storey concrete condo project on a former White Spot restaurant site (the site is owned and being developed by parent company Shato Holdings).
Sales for the project began in the spring of 2015, and construction began last fall. The project is now 100% sold out.

A rezoning application has been filed for a 17,000 SF two-lot assembly site at 7638-7662 Cambie Street, on the east side of Cambie between West 60th and West 61st Street.
The proposal is for a 6-storey condo building that includes:
- 34 units;
- 2 studios, 4 one-bedrooms, 22 two-bedrooms and 6 three-bedrooms
- a building height of 70 ft. ;
- a total density of 2.43 FSR; and
- 71 vehicle parking spaces and 49 bicycle spaces.
The application is being considered under the Cambie Corridor Plan.
The architect, GBL, explains the design rationale: “The Cambie Street facade comprises of stacked linear interowoven layers that playfully mirror the vehicular energy and movement of the adjacent street. The long projecting balconies act as giant louvers that shield the building face from mid to late afternoon sun, while also providing some acoustic buffering depth from the busy traffic.”
