A full rezoning application has been submitted for the 3.3 acre Jewish Community Centre and Louis Brier Homes property at 950 West 41st Avenue, just East of Oak Street.
The plan calls to amend the existing CD-1 zoning to allow a phased redevelopment of the property that became possible under the Oakridge Transit Centre Policy Statement adopted by the City in 2016 in order to facilitate the eventual redevelopment of the Oakridge Transit Centre site across the street. The Jewish Community Centre site is located directly across the street to the South and was also redesignated given it’s adjacency.

- A 9-storey replacement Jewish Community Centre, including:
- recreation space, including pools and gyms;
- ground level commercial space;
- an Early Childhood Education Centre, including 104 private daycare spaces;
- cultural arts, auditorium, and theatre space;
- non-profit office space; and
- a height of 121 ft..
- A 13-storey replacement Louis Brier Home and Hospital Seniors Care Facility, with:
- senior assisted living, complex care and memory care beds; and

- 160 secured market rental units;
- 64 studios, 40 one-bedrooms, 40 two-bedrooms and 16 three-bedrooms;
