The City of Vancouver has received a revised application to rezone 1920 Southwest Marine Drive from RS-1 (One-Family Dwelling) District to CD-1 (Comprehensive Development) District to allow development of a 90-bed Class B Seniors’ Community Care Facility.
The new proposal includes heritage preservation and reuse of the existing Casa Mia mansion, which is a Class A Heritage listed building, and development of a two-storey addition with basement and underground parking. A total of 90 beds for seniors complex care accommodation are proposed, including 58 publicly-funded beds and 32 private-pay beds.
In response to our previous concerns, the revised proposal appears to incorporate elements from the Green House Project Model of care. We look forward to discussing this in more detail with the applicant at our June 12 meeting, which is open to the public.
A community open house will be held from 5:00-8:00 pm on Tuesday, June 6, 2017 at Dr. R. E. McKechnie Elementary School, 7455 Maple Street, with the applicant team and City staff available to answer questions.
