2195 Gordon Avenue: Phase 2
Nov 13, 2019
In 2014, the District acquired the site at 2195 Gordon Avenue for $16 million. The site is located directly north of the West Vancouver Community Centre, south of Pauline Johnson Elementary School and is 76,500 square feet (or 1.76 acres) in area.
In 2018, Council and staff began working with external experts to consider possible options for the development of the site. In September 2018, Council directed staff to proceed with public consultation on possible options with the intent to address housing affordability and balance revenue needs for other District public projects.
The initial consultation (Phase 1) took place from February 7 to April 15, 2019, and is now complete. The District completed initial consultation proposing to use the site to create housing, increase rental supply and improve affordability with no ongoing cost to the District.
After considering the results of the initial consultation, at the April 29, 2019, Council Meeting, Council unanimously passed a resolution authorizing staff to proceed with a rezoning application. This includes the required steps to proceed to the rezoning application and an Official Community Plan (OCP) amendment to incorporate proposed Development Permit Area Designation Guidelines. In accordance with District processes for all rezoning applications, a pre-application meeting is being held on November 21, 2019.
Pre-Application Preliminary Public Information Meeting
Date: November 21, 2019
