Increased Height & Density Pitched for Ashley Mar Co-Op Redevelopment

Intracorp has sent a revised rezoning application for the Ashley Mar Co-op website 8460 Ash Street in the Marpole area of Vancouver.

Their initial rezoning application from 2019 imagined 3 towers at 15, 24, 27 storeys and consisted of 457 rental units.

The new application proposes increased tower heights, density and more systems in exchange for increased obstacles along Ash Street to permit enhanced tree retention. The proposal now consists of:

Three towers at 16, 27 and 31 floors;
1-for-1 replacement of the existing 54 Ashley Mar Housing Co-operative units;
71 additional non-market real estate units;
524 protected market rental systems;
1 commercial-retail system;
An overall density of 8.21 FSR (up from 7.54 FSR).
A max structure height of 304 ft. (up from 267 ft);.
195 vehicle parking spaces and 1,297 bicycle parking spaces.

The application is being thought about under the Marpole Community Plan and the Ashley Mar Issues Report (February 11, 2020).
