Grandview Woodland Community Plan

The Grandview Woodland Community Plan (“The Plan”) was approved in July 2016 and will guide future growth and change in the community.

The Plan seeks to add family and non-market housing, protect and increase rental homes, improve community amenities, and preserve the unique vibe of the Drive. Our site is located within the Commercial-Broadway Station Precinct Area, which envisions “a complete, transit-oriented neighbourhood, anchoring the south end of The Drive” (p. 106, Grandview Woodland Community Plan).

As per The Plan, a proposal for the “Safeway Site” will take into account several of The Plan’s key guidelines, including:

 

MIXED USE
This site will have new mixed-use development at a variety of scales, including mid-rise and high-rise components. The development will include office space, a mix of retail (including small-scale retail and large format grocery) and ownership housing opportunities. The site will feature a central public plaza, with pedestrian paths connecting the plaza to adjacent streets, retail and transit facilities and other public spaces. (6.7.1 Station Mixed-Use and Employment, p. 112, Grandview Woodland Community Plan).

 
 
RENTAL AND NON-MARKET

Rental housing
Achieve a balance between conserving the existing stock of older, affordable, market rental housing and the need to increase the secured rental housing supply in appropriate locations. (7.1.4 Opportunities for Secured Market Rental Housing, p. 132, Grandview Woodland Community Plan).

Recognizing the strategic regional importance of the Broadway Station area as a transit hub, increase housing opportunities at Broadway Station with a focus on rental housing. (7.1.4 Opportunities for Secured Market Rental Housing, p. 132, Grandview Woodland Community Plan).

Non-market housing
Maintain and increase the amount of mixed income non-market housing in the neighbourhood. (7.1.3 Opportunities for Non-Market Housing, p. 131, Grandview Woodland Community Plan).

HEIGHT
At key anchor points within the site, heights range from 12 to 24 storeys above the retail plinth. (6.7.1 Station Mixed-Use and Employment, p. 112, Grandview Woodland Community Plan).

Consider modest increases in height and density for the delivery of non-market housing to assist with project viability, subject to fit with neighbourhood context. (7.1.3 Opportunities for Non-Market Housing, p. 131, Grandview Woodland Community Plan).


DENSITY
5.7 FSR
Residential uses: 4.5 FSR
Commercial uses: 1.2 FSR minimum (0.5 FSR minimum for office)
(6.7.1 Station Mixed-Use and Employment, p. 112, Grandview Woodland Community Plan).
