Site Area: 31,042 Sqft

FSR: 6.0

A revised rezoning application has been submitted to the City of Vancouver for 1220-1298 Hastings St. The proposal is to allow for the development of three buildings (two market strata buildings at 120 ft. height and one social housing building at 80 ft. height). The zoning would change from M-1 (Industrial) District to CD-1 (Comprehensive Development) District.

The project site is located on the southwest corner of the intersection of East Hastings Street and Clark Drive. The site occupies the majority of the block bound by Clark Drive to the east, and Vernon Drive to the west, with the exception of the westernmost lot, currently occupied by a gas station.

Downtown Eastside is dominated by old commercial and industrial building and is being slowly converted to residential homes. The building in the area is outdated and is due for renewal. The new construction will bring a new breeze to the neighbourhood.
