A mixed-use redevelopment that includes rental housing can come to the northeast corner of Main Street and East 24th Avenue in Vancouver’s Riley Park Little Mountain neighborhood.
Local developer Locarno Legacy has filed a redevelopment application to turn 3970-3998 Main Street, currently inhabited by older commercial and two-story residential buildings, into an 83-foot-tall, six-story building. The project’s design company is Yamamoto Architecture.
There would be 60 secured market rental homes with a unit composition of 15 studios, 20 units with one bedroom, 21 units with two bedrooms and four units with three bedrooms. Residents will have access to indoor and outdoor facilities on the roof.
The building’s street front is activated by approximately 6,600 square meters of retail and restaurant space on the ground floor.
The total floor area is 52,724 square feet, giving the project a floor area ratio density of a floor area that is 3.97 times larger than the size of the base size of just under 13,300 square feet.
Two underground levels will accommodate 53 parking stalls and 128 bicycle parking spaces.
This is considered a transit-oriented development as it is served by two frequent TransLink bus routes no. 3 Downtown / Main and No. 25 UBC / Brentwood Station.
