Rezoning applications snapshot, 1-Jan-2022

Example of a rezoning application information sign

As a free public service CityHallWatch has for many years been taking a monthly snapshot of rezoning and development applications from the City of Vancouver website and making them available on our website.

The lists contain valuable information on each application (all now being done online during the era of COVID). If you see any of concern, please spread the word to anyone who might be affected or interested. Our archive goes back years and is not available anywhere else. Even the City does not provide this information.

The City has stopped updating its rezoning (vancouver.ca/rezapps) and development application (vancouver.ca/devapps) web pages and shifted to a very different format called “Shape Your City.” Some changes may make it more user friendly, but some have reduced transparency and accessibility. On Shape Your City, you only see the applications the City wants you to see right now, in the way they want you to see it, and the rest of the information disappears. No handy lists, no archives prior to 2020.

We’ve created our own static snapshot version map using Google Maps. Click to see the current map for January 2022. New rezoning applications include the following:

2009-2037 Stainsbury Ave  (7-storeys, 23.83m/78.18ft, 3.46 FSR, 123 social housing units on community garden site)
5455 Balsam St  (14-storeys, 39.62m/130ft., 3.63 FSR, 145 rental units, 142 parking spaces)
156-180 W 2nd Ave  (46.5m/152.5 ft., FSR 6.0, Citytv building site, see our post on the proposal here)

Below is our list of rezoning applications created as of 1-Jan-2022.
