Reliance Properties has applied to the City of Vancouver for permission to redevelop 837 Beatty Street located on Robson and Smith Street. The existing two floor commercial building is lower than its adjacent construction. The goal is to rehabilitate the heritage building and the redevelopment will bring it up to on par with surrounding buildings.

Site Statistic:

  • Site Area – 6,992 Sqft
  • Potential Density – 5.5 FSR
  • Buildable – 38,456 Sqft
  • Current Zoning – C3
  • Development Details:
  • a commercial building containing retail uses on the ground and lower levels, office uses on levels two to five and rooftop amenity space;
  • a height of 27.3 m (89.57 ft.) from Beatty Street and 30.2 m (99.1 ft.) when measured from the lane;

  • loading is located in the lower level having vehicular access from the lane.

Under the site’s existing DD zoning, the application is “conditional” so it may be permitted; however, it requires the decision of the Development Permit Board.
