Since the initial 2019 rezoning application a number of important changes have been incorporated including a focus on rental housing, further design development of the public plaza and animating 10th Avenue with small-scale retail.
A 20,000 square foot public plaza will be a new public gathering space to the community.
480 of the 680 homes proposed are now rental housing, with a range of housing options suitable for singles, couples and families. This would increase the neighbourhood’s rental housing stock by 3.9%, including the increase in 3-bedroom rental homes by 29%.
A 12,000 square foot daycare will support new families living in the building as well as those who already call Grandview Woodland home.
A new and expanded Safeway grocery store fronting East Broadway is accessible from the public plaza. This will be complemented with a two-storey brew pub and small-scale affordable retail opportunities along East 10th Avenue for local artisans and vendors.

At key anchor points within the site, building heights range from 25 to 31 storeys above the retail plinth.
Modest increases in height and density are proposed for the delivery of the 40 non-market homes.
