Intracorp has sent a modified rezoning application for the Ashley Mar Co-op site 8460 Ash Street in the Marpole area of Vancouver.
Their initial rezoning application from 2019 visualized 3 towers at 15, 24, 27 storeys and included 457 rentals.
The new application proposes increased tower heights, density and more units in exchange for increased setbacks along Ash Street to enable enhanced tree retention. The proposition now consists of:
3 towers at 16, 27 and 31 storeys;
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 units;
1 commercial-retail system;
An overall density of 8.21 FSR (up from 7.54 FSR).
A max building height of 304 ft. (up from 267 feet);.
195 car parking areas and 1,297 bicycle parking areas.
The application is being thought about under the Marpole Community Plan and the Ashley Mar Issues Report (February 11, 2020).
