A proposal to transform an auto lot in South Vancouver into a transit-oriented hub with urban industrial, below-market and rental residential, and job space.
PCI Developments has submitted a rezoning application to the City of Vancouver to transform an under-utilized auto lot next to the Marine Drive Canada Line station and South Vancouver bus loop into a transit-oriented economic, urban industrial, below market & rental residential, and workforce hub.
The project would be directly connected to PCI’s global award-winning Marine Gateway development and existing rapid and bus transit infrastructure.
More industrial space
Marine Gateway 2 will help relieve pressure on the limited amount of industrial space in the region by creating an additional 300,000 sq. ft. of stacked urban industrial space in Vancouver — a sixfold increase to what currently exists at the site.
Its proximity to end-users, public transit, and transportation corridors would help attract urban industrial users such as digital media creators, food commissaries, and other production, distribution, and repair companies.
Over 1,000 below-market and rental homes
The project would create over 1,000 below-market and rental homes, including 680 market rentals, 170 moderate-income rentals, and 203 below-market ownership homes.
Through partnerships with the City of Vancouver and BC Housing, Marine Gateway 2 would support the housing needs of South Vancouver’s growing community.
A workforce hub for a variety of industries
A total of 280,000 sq. ft. of new office space would host 1,850 workers, including approximately 180 industrial, 175 retail, and 1,450 office jobs.
Combined, Marine Gateway and Marine Gateway 2 would create a workforce hub in South Vancouver that would host approximately 3,000 workers.
From parking lot to transit hub
With a direct connection to the Marine Drive Canada Line station, Marine Gateway 2 would help optimize government investment in public transit by providing a significant and much-needed boost to post-pandemic ridership.
By following leading sustainability standards for construction and leveraging energy production synergies with the existing Marine Gateway complex, the project will catalyze economic activity while minimizing carbon emissions.
Supporting local and regional priorities
Marine Gateway 2 supports several local and regional plans, including:
• Metro Vancouver’s Industrial Land Strategy
• Metro Vancouver’s Regional Growth Strategy
• City of Vancouver’s Cambie Corridor Plan
• City of Vancouver’s Employment Lands Plan
The project site is located at 8530 Cambie street and would be directly connected to the existing Marine Gateway complex, the Marine Drive Canada Line station, and the South Vancouver bus loop. The site is a 5-minute drive from Vancouver’s International Airport and a 30-minute drive from two international ports.
A rezoning application has been submitted to the City of Vancouver through its new Policy Enquiry Process. Once approved, construction for the project is estimated to be complete within four years.
