District of West Vancouver has received a rezoning application for a 8-storey building containing 89 condo units.
The new development is located at 657 & 675 Marine Drive and 660 Clyde Avenue.
Executive Park Limited Partnership has applied for the rezoning from commercial to mixed-use. Of the 89 units, 21 units will be rental for the life of the building.
Heritage protection of the “Woyat-Bowie” commercial building is also being proposed.
The site is comprised of four separate lots with three addresses: 660 Clyde Avenue, 675 Marine Drive and 657 Marine Drive.
The consolidated lots create a “J” shaped development site.
A separated bike path, a parkette, children’s play equipment, a water feature, gardening areas, and 112 underground parking spaces and 93 bike storage lockers are also being proposed.
The developer also plans to designate the “Woyat-Bowie” building as a municipal resource and ensure its ongoing protection and maintenance.
The commercial building at 660 Clyde Avenue, known as the “WoyatBowie Building,” was added to the West Vancouver Community Heritage Register in 2019.
Constructed in 1966, the building is significant because it is an early and intact example of a commercial building, for its expression of the West Coast aesthetic in a nonresidential form, and its association with the architects Fred Hollingsworth and Barry Downs.
