  • The Opportunity

    An opportunity to acquire 100% freehold interest of the property located at 1869 Frances Street in Vancouver’s vibrant and dynamic East Vancouver neighbourhood (the “Property” and/or “Lands”). The Lands are currently improved with an existing 34-unit apartment building with a desirable suite mix of bachelor, 1-bedroom and 2-bedroom units with tremendous rental revenue upside. The existing secured revenue streams are further backstopped by the rectangular site which is designated for a potential 38,704 square foot residential rental project aligned with the City of Vancouver’s Grandview-Woodland Official Community Plan. The current ownership submitted an application for rezoning (“Rezoning Enquiry”) in 2017, and has also engaged an architect to provide conceptual renderings of a six-story, 58-unit purpose built rental apartment building.
