The rezoning of 450 Gore Avenue from RT-3 to a CD-1 zone proposes a 6 storey, 65 residential rental unit building, with a ground floor retail component.  This project is being developed under the City of Vancouver’s Rental 100 Secured Market Rental Housing Policy.

The design rationale of the project is predicated on the urban design observation that the east side of Gore Avenue, although RT-3 in zoning designation, should also be seen as the
east boundary of Chinatown.

Consequentially, the 6 storey massing of the project, with its tripartite elevation, references the massing of buildings that line the west side of Gore Avenue, and is informed by the intention of the Local Area Plan.
