The subject site is located on the west side of Arbutus Street in the Arbutus Ridge neighborhood, encompassing approximately 16,776 sq. ft. (1559 sq. m.) bounded on the east by Arbutus Street and on the north by West 16th Avenue. To the south are adjacent RS-1 zoned properties. A continuous 20’ (6.1m) wide laneway exists to the west of the site that creates a distinct separation from an RS-1 district composed of single-family dwellings towards the west.

The total proposed floor area is approximately 41,943 sq. ft. (3897 sq. m.) with an FSR of 2.5. The proposed building is approximately 59.97 ft. (18.28 m.) at its highest point.
