A rezoning application for a co-op housing project proposed for the Renfrew-Collingwood neighbourhood undergoes its first review by the Urban Design Panel May 29.

The six-storey building features 102 social housing units designed for households earning less than $50,000. Developed by the Community Land Trust, it would be constructed on city-owned land. ZGF Architects is involved in the application.

The site is located on Vanness Avenue at McHardy Street near the SkyTrain station.

1956-1990 STAINSBURY AVE.

An 80-unit, five-storey rental building in Kensington-Cedar Cottage, some of whose units would be geared towards moderate-income households, also faces its first UDP review next Wednesday. Carscadden Stokes McDonald Architects filed the rezoning application for the project.

It’s being considered under the Moderate Income Rental Housing Pilot Program, which means 20 per cent of the residential floor area must be reserved for households earning between $30,000 and $80,000 annually.
