Director of Community Planning on behalf of Land Use and Development


Form of Development - 1529 West Pender Street

DE402351 - CD-1 By-law Number 7200

Owner of Development - Canadian Pacific Properties Inc.


THAT the approved form of development for this portion (Sub-Area 1, Lot 1.1a) of the CD-1 zoned site known as 300 Cardero Street (1529 West Pender Street being the application address) be generally approved as illustrated in Development Application Number DE402351, prepared by Reid Crowther & Partners Ltd. and stamped "Received, City Planning Department September 26, 1997", provided that the Director of Planning may approve design changes which would not adversely affect either the development character of this site or adjacent properties.


The General Manager of Community Services RECOMMENDS approval of the foregoing.


There is no applicable Council Policy except that Council did approve in principle the form of development for this site when rezoning was approved, following a Public Hearing.


In accordance with Charter requirements, this report seeks Council’s approval for the form of development for this portion of the above-noted CD-1 zoned site.


At a Public Hearing on December 11, 1991, City Council approved a rezoning of this site from CWD Central Waterfront District to CD-1 Comprehensive Development District. Council also approved in principle the form of development for these lands. CD-1 By-law Number 7200 was enacted on October 19, 1993. Companion Guidelines (Marina Neighbourhood CD-1 Guidelines for Land Development) were also adopted by Council resolution at that time.

The site and surrounding zoning are shown on the attached Appendix ‘A’.

The Director of Planning has now approved Development Application Number DE402351. This approval was subject to various conditions, including Council approval of the form of development. The latter condition is one of the few outstanding prior to permit issuance.


The proposal involves the use of Lot 1.1a as a surface parking lot, providing a total of 69 parking spaces. It is expected that the site will be developed in the near future with a permanent structure, in accordance with the CD-1 By-law provisions. Therefore, it is intended that development permit approval for the surface parking lot would be limited in time to a one-year period, unless extended in writing by the Director of Planning.

Simplified plans, including a site plan and landscape plan of the proposal, have been included in Appendix ‘B’.


The Director of Planning has approved Development Application Number DE402351, subject to various conditions to be met, prior to the issuance of the development permit. One of these conditions is that the form of development first be approved by Council.
