900-block Yates Street + 1045 Yates Street

Starlight Developments has submitted an Official Community Plan Amendment and Rezoning Application for two nearby sites, the  900-block of Yates Street and 1045 Yates Street.

Both sites are located in the Harris Green neighbourhood and are ideally located within a 15 minute walk of downtown, the harbour, schools, shops and public amenities. 

The sites are currently home to commercial uses including London Drugs, the Market on Yates, a car dealership and a small number of residential tenants.


Policy Context

The 900-block Yates Street and 1045 Yates Street sites are located within the Downtown Core Area Plan (DCPA) as identified in the City's Official Community Plan (OCP).

The project sites are located within the Residential Mixed-Use District. The plan envisions high density mid to high rise development, encouraging mixed-use, multi-residential development, with public amenities that contribute to a complete community, including an urban plaza with an active public realm.
