2220 Kingsway #2
The rezoning application for 2220 Kingsway went up today, Friday 6 July 2012, on the City of Vancouver Rezoning Centre web site. The application materials consist of 24 separate downloadable pdf files.
The proposed development site, currently occupied by a Canadian Tire store, occupies 2.3 acres of land at the southeast corner of Kingsway at Gladstone Street. This property lies right at the western boundary of the “neighbourhood centre” area for Norquay, right beside a designated north-south bicycle route.
2220 Kingsway is one of three yet-to-be-redeveloped large land parcels that lie along Norquay’s one-mile stretch of Kingsway. What is done with this major development proposal will impact the future of the entire local community. The other two especially large sites are the 2400 Kingsway motel property (owned by City of Vancouver) at Slocan Street at the center of Norquay, and the Purdy’s property (2777 Kingsway at Earles Street) near the eastern boundary of Norquay.
