1111 Seymour Residences

2013 04 23 04 28 23 1111 seymour courtyard view1 alt2013 04 23 04 22 22 se view 2013 02 25 pers cor sv

A proposal from Endall Elliot Associates to construct a 8-storey, 39 dwelling unit multiple dwelling building and a 2 storey, 1 dwelling unit building on this site with underground parking accessed from the lane. The proposal includes the following:

•  39 residential units
•  25 underground parking spaces
•  Building height 74.25 ft (83.9 ft top of amenity roof, 95 ft top of elevaor)
•  FSR (floor space ratio) of 3,24
•  Total floor area of 29,131 sf

Currently occupied by an older three storey wood frame building, the site at 1111 Seymour Street offers an opportunity for a unique residential infill development in a vibrant part of the Downtown South. The immediate neighbourhood is home to a mix of residential, hotel, office, social service, retail and entertainment uses. The project site is located mid-block on the west side of the 1100 block of Seymour Street directly across from Emery Barnes Park. The Brava residential towers and International Film Centre are directly to the south of the site, and an affordable housing and office project, currently in the rezoning approval process, is proposed for the 1107 Seymour Street site to the north.

This development permit application is in compliance with the DD zoning and the Downtown South Guidelines. Located in the New Yaletown area of the Downtown South this 9000 SF site is allowed, under the current zoning, an FSR of 3 (27,000 SF) and a height of 70’. An additional FSR of 0.3 (2,700 SF) is also permitted through the transfer of heritage density, subject to Development Permit Board approval, which would result in an allowable FSR area of 29,700 SF.

In accordance with the existing zoning, this application proposes 29,131 SF (FSR 3.24) of market residential over 8 floors. This density would result in the 27,000 SF of space (FSR 3) allowed under the existing zoning plus an additional 2,131 SF (FSR .24) allowed through the transfer of heritage floor space. The loading, vehicle and bicycle parking are in compliance with the Vancouver’s bylaw requirements. Access to the two levels of below grade parking is from the lane. Due to the sloping nature of the site a minor height variance of approximately 4’-3” is requested at the Seymour Street side of the site. The project will be LEED Silver equivalent.

The proposed social housing development to the north at 1107 Seymour Street is expected to go to Public Hearing for rezoning approval in April this year. This Wall Financial project will provide 81 units of affordable rental housing and office space for community related non-profits organizations.

As the architects for both projects, we have designed the 1111 Seymour Street project to complement the adjacent development. Several signifi-cant design challenges for the 1107 Seymour project were identified at the rezoning stage, particularly regarding parking and loading access and the resulting limitations on available space for retail and other uses at street level. The introduction of a combined parking access from the lane for both projects via the proposed 1111 Seymour Street project has resulted in substantial planning improvements to the ground level community related floor space of the 1107 Seymour Street project.

Through careful consideration of form of development options for the 1111 site, and the interface between the two projects along the common property line, several planning improvements have also been incorporated into the 1107 proposal to achieve horizontal daylight angles and respect privacy and overlook issues between the two developments.
