Council granted the Evergreen Lane Rental Apartment Buildings project at 4603, 4625 and 4649 Evergreen Lane Third Reading on September 9, 2021.


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;
  • 65 resident parking spaces and 12 visitor parking spaces accessed from Evergreen Lane;
  • 8,668 m2 (93,302 ft2 ) total residential area; and
  • 15.9 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;
  • 83 resident parking spaces and 7 visitor parking spaces;
  • 6,959 m2 (74,906 ft2 ) total residential area; and
  • 14.7 m (48 ft) maximum building height for apartments
  • 14 m (46 ft) maximum building height for townhouses


Phase 1 and 2, includes:

  • Principal Building Setbacks:
  1. Front (Evergreen Lane): Phase 1: 5 m (16 ft) and Phase 2: 7.2 m (24 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 45 units over the 153 units currently permitted.

  2. Rezoning from Apartment Residential 20 (RA20) to a new Apartment and Townhouse Residential 180(R) [RA180(R)] Zone.

  3. Development Variance Permit to vary: the minimum setback to the principal building on the north side; setback requirements to allow for entry structures, roof eaves and gutters, stairs and walkways, balconies and patios; resident and visitor parking requirements; resident and visitor accessible parking requirements; loading space for Phase 1 (Seniors Housing); bicycle parking requirements for Phase 1 (Seniors Housing); and front yard surface parking for Phase 2 (Family Housing).

  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.
