District of North Vancouver plans to lease a former church site in Pemberton Height neighbourhood.
District recently issued a Request for Expressions of Interest (REOI) to find a suitable tenant for the district-owned building at 1390 West 22nd Street, the former Capilano United Church.
District is looking for a suitable tenant to sign a negotiated lease or rental agreement with a set term. The final approval of the lease or rental agreement will be made by Council.
The building is being offered in an “as is where is” condition. The property is zoned Public Assembly. Those interested will have to describe the type of business or community use they would propose. If an existing business wanted to relocate, they would have to provide information about its nature, history and years in operation.
The interested applicant will have to describe any renovations that would be undertaken. The applicant would also have to describe how the use of property would support the local community.
This REOI is issued primarily as a means of technical discovery and as a way to gather information. It is for planning purposes only and should not be construed as a solicitation nor should it be construed as an obligation on the part of the District to lease or license the facility.
The former church is a 100-year-old building measuring approximately 4,180 sq. ft. It is a wood-frame construction, with wood shingle, horizontal wood siding and a prefinished metal panel roof.

The lower level is approximately 2,046 sq. ft., consisting of an open area and two office spaces.
Parking is limited and there is no significant exterior space. It isn’t suitable for childcare requiring playground space. The property includes a small kitchen area, an elevator and washrooms.
