78 unit mixed use development proposed at Shelbourne & McKenzie


Formerly the site of a Shell gas station, the, 14,400 square foot property at 3949 Shelbourne Street has applied for a site specific rezone (CD-1) to house a six-storey, 78-unit purpose-built rental complex with two ground floor commercial units.

The anticipated unit make-up will yield a mix of 68 studio and one-bedroom residences and 10 two-bedroom suites. An underground parking component accessible off of McKenzie Avenue will accommodate 20 vehicles. This is a big variance to the 117 parking stalls required.

Development Proposal
Site Size: 14,400 SF
FSR: 3.65
Buildable SF: 57,302
Unit Mix: 87% Studio, 13% 2 bedroom
