Cambie Corridor Phase 3 – New Priorities

Cambie Corridor Phase 3 – New Priorities


Mayor Robertson has made some big promises lately. So, the Cambie Phase 3 will identify the resolve of City Hall.


“Gregor Robertson promises more than 4,000 affordable housing units in Cambie corridor”


http://www.straight.com/news/923196/gregor-robertson-promises-more-4000-affordable-housing-units-cambie-corridor




In the Open House at Oakridge Ctr, the planners show what they intend for the area from 16th Ave to Marine Drive. Important: There are large areas designated for townhouses. From the back of my pre-sale condo, there will be townhouses all the way to Oak St. Yah! No fortunes for land owners.


A third of new dwellings (@12k) will be social/affordable rental apartments. Add in 20% rentals from the other 2/3 and that brings the rental proportion to almost half. In line with the existing 50% rental average for CoV.


A victory for renters (seniors included). Not so good for buyers who may have to pay more because of the social housing units in the building. Not so good for land owners along the main road because some sections have been reserved for rental projects.


Oakridge has been designed a Municipal Town Centre. However, the area will retain its low density heritage. Kerrisdale is cited as their model.


Most of the new designations allow density up 4 floors. Wholly rental buildings will be allowed to go 2 floors higher. Mixed use projects may build higher.


On the positive side, there will be several new parks. The city remains determined to minimize the use of motor vehicles. In 2008, foot/bike/transit made up 40% of all trips. The target for 2020 is >50%. The target for 2040 is two thirds.


There is a planned B line for 41st Avenue.


After Phase 3, about 40% of the area (mainly detached housing) is available for rezoning.


There won't be a massive flood of new dwellings for the area. So, the area will remain attractive. The Cambie Corridor remains a primo choice if you don't want to live in the high density downtown/Main St/ False Creek area.

Overall it is a good plan. Supply of new units (11,500) is a big increase from Phase 1 & 2 (6,600 units). The key is the townhouses and row houses. Five comfortable row houses can be built on the land of two small SFH.

 If they can do this all over CoV and get them built, there might be enough housing till 2041. Significant amounts of rental and social housing. A big thumbs up compared to Burnaby.

The information boards are here.

Anyone want to add their insights?
