A single-family house at the corner of West 49th and Granville will soon be joined by nine new secured market rental units.
The upcoming development will consist of two buildings in a similar architectural style as the existing home, which will be retained.
The new units will all be three bedrooms, except for 1 one-bedroom caretaker unit. The apartments will include outdoor space on the second floor, measuring around 40 square feet.
There will be minimal parking provided, consisting of four off-street parking spaces, one car share space, and 24 bicycle spaces.
The architects are Stuart Howard Architects of Vancouver.
The application is being considered under the City of Vancouver’s Affordable Housing Choices Interim Policy.
Although this part of Granville is not traditionally a neighbourhood where you would expect to see rental housing, that’s changing with city initiatives.
Farther north on Granville in Shaughnessy, there’s a proposal for 81 market rental housing units in a four-storey building at West 32nd, also designed by Stuart Howard Architects.
