A redevelopment proposal with new rental housing is under review for the property where St. Marks Anglican Church sits in Kitsilano.

The 100-year-old church was put up for sale one year ago for $12 million.

Located at the corner of West 2nd Avenue and Larch Street, St. Mark’s stopped serving Anglican congregations five years ago and has relied on rental income from community groups. It’s currently leased with a Montessori school and a parish.

The City of Vancouver has received an application to rezone the subject site from RT-8 (Two-Family Dwelling) District to CD-1 (Comprehensive Development) District, to permit the development of a five-storey rental residential building.

The proposal includes 63 secured rental units with a minimum of 20% of the residential floor area permanently secured for moderate income households.

The application is being considered under the Moderate Income Rental Housing Pilot Program (MIRHPP).

A community open house will be held on Wednesday, April 10th from 5-8pm at Kitsilano Neighbourhood House at 2305 West 7th Avenue, with City staff and the applicant team available to answer questions.
