Four-storey condo may replace three single-family homes

Building eyed for site across from Langara College

It could be out with three single-family homes and in with a four-storey, 35-unit condo building if a rezoning application for 105-125 West 49th Ave. is ultimately approved.

Billard Architecture Inc. filed the application for the project envisioned for a site at West 49th and Manitoba Street, across from Langara College.

In its design rationale, the firm says the project called “Langara House” will “increase density in [the] neighbourhood with long term livability and community feel provided by age-friendly amenity spaces.”

The wood-frame building, which is being considered under the Cambie corridor plan, would produce one studio, 16 one-bedroom, 14 two-bedroom and four three-bedroom units.

It would also include 53 underground parking spaces, and 44 bicycle spaces. The proposed floor space ratio is 2.27.

The application notes the site’s proximity to YWCA – Langara Family Community Centre, Langara College, Langara Golf Course, the West 49th Avenue SkyTrain station and bus routes.

Billard Achitecture is also involved in projects at 486 West 26th Ave. (a 29-unit, six-storey condo building) and one at 5110 Cambie St. (a 12-unit, six-storey building.)

An open house about the plans for 105-125 West 49th Ave. runs from 5 to 7 p.m., Oct. 30, at the Peretz Centre.

The proposed development site is at the corner of West 49th and Manitoba.
