Space has been reserved for a new Canada Line station in Vancouver.
The station would be located at the corner of West 57th Avenue and Cambie Street as part of the proposed redevelopment of the Pearson Dogwood lands.
The Onni Group acquired most of the 10-hectare parcel of land from Vancouver Coastal Health, and it has filed an application to rezone the property located between West 57th and 59th avenues and Cambie and Heather streets.
In documents submitted to city hall, the company stated that the space it reserved for a transit station can accommodate a structure that will house escalators and elevators to service the underground line.
The applicant also noted that “new streets at the northeast quadrant of the master plan (connections with Cambie Street and 57th Avenue) will be designed to accommodate a standard TransLink bus, and a bus stop location will be developed close to the station.”
Onni plans to develop condo and rental buildings with heights ranging from three storeys to 28 storeys. It will also replace units currently on-site that are used to care for seniors with disabilities and complex needs.
