The redevelopment of properties near the Langara–49th Avenue station of the Canada Line has started.
A plan has been submitted to the city for a 10-storey rental building adjacent to and north of the station in the South Cambie neighbourhood of Vancouver.
Hotson Architecture is asking city hall to rezone the single-family properties at 478–496 West 48th Avenue and Cambie Street for the housing project with retail on the ground level.
The proposed development could be the forerunner for others in the immediate vicinity of the station.
The submission by Hotson indicated that other single-family homes on West 48th and West 49th avenues to the east of the station and its proposed building have the potential for three- and four-storey projects.
To the north of the project, on Cambie Street, are single-family properties that may be developed into six- to eight-storey buildings, according to the company.
Hotson also projected that the single-family lots across from the Canada Line station and the proposed project on Cambie Street may later become eight- to 10-storey buildings.
An open house for the project at 478–496 West 48th Avenue will be held on Tuesday (March 7) from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Peretz Centre for Secular Jewish Culture (6184 Ash Street).
