Proposal to rezone Northwest Point Grey's mansion area for 6-storey buildings

One Vancouver City Councillor will need to bat very hard to get this idea over the outfield fence, as he has very high ambitions when it comes to increasing density in the city to help address housing affordability.

Hector Bremner, the newly elected Vancouver City Councillor with the Non-Partisan Association (NPA), will be introducing a motion to City Council on Tuesday to allow low-rise buildings to be built in the most upscale area of the most expensive neighbourhood in not just the City of Vancouver but all of Canada.

The motion calls for the rezoning of the northwest corner of the West Point Grey (NWPG) neighbourhood – an area of large lots occupied by mansions. The proposed area for rezoning is framed by Blanca Street to the east, West 4th Avenue to the south, Pacific Spirit Regional Park to the west, and Spanish Banks to the north.
