We would like your feedback on a 198-unit affordable seniors and family housing development to be constructed in two phases. The proposed development would be non-market rental housing with rents set at levels affordable for households with low, moderate, and middle incomes.


The following are the key aspects of the proposal on Evergreen Lane:

Phase 1 includes:

  • 130 seniors’ housing units in a four-storey apartment building on the north portion of the site;
  • 64 resident parking spaces and 13 visitor parking spaces accessed from Evergreen Lane;
  • 1.31 floor space ratio;
  • 8,265 m2 (88,964 ft2 ) total residential area; and
  • 15.7 m (52 ft) maximum building height


Phase 2 includes:

  • 68 family housing units in a 48-unit four-storey apartment building and a 20-unit three-storey townhouse building on the south portion of the site;
  • 81 resident parking spaces and 9 visitor parking spaces;
  • 0.68 floor space ratio;
  • 7,261 m2 (78, 157 ft2 ) total residential area; and
  • 13.8 m (45 ft) maximum building height


Phase 1 and 2, includes:

  • Principal Building Setbacks:
  1. Front (Evergreen Lane): Phase 1: 5 m (16 ft) and Phase 2: 9 m (30 ft)
  2. Rear (West): 7.5 m (25 ft)
  3. Side (North): 5.5 m (18 ft)
  4. Side (South): 7.5 m (25 ft)
  • Driveway access and pedestrian access would be from Evergreen Lane.

In order to facilitate the proposed development, the following are required:

  1. Amendment to the Official Community Plan by changing the land use designation in the Ladner Future Land Use Plan in Schedule B.3 from Medium Density Residential (MDR), which allows a maximum density of 120 units per hectare (49 units per acre) to a new Official Community Plan designation, which would allow for the proposed density of 153 units per hectare (62 units per acre). This change would result in an increase of 43 units over the 155 units currently permitted.

  2. Rezoning from Apartment Residential 20 (RA20) to a new Apartment Residential 180 (RA 180) Zone.

  3. Development Variance Permit to vary: the minimum setback to the principal building on the north side; setback requirements to allow for roof eaves and gutters, balconies and patios; resident and visitor parking requirements for all buildings; setback requirements for stairs and ramps (north); and bicycle parking requirements for the seniors’ building.

  4. Development Permit to address the form and character of the proposed development, based on the Ladner Village (LV1) Development Permit Area guidelines.

  5. Consolidation of 3 lots into 1 lot.


In response to physical distancing requirements related to COVID-19, Delta will be holding a virtual Public Information Meeting with an online question and answer (Q&A) period in place of an in-person meeting for this project.


Please note that this application is at a preliminary stage and has not gone to Council for their consideration. Therefore, aspects of the proposal may change as the application proceeds through the review process.
