To acquire a redevelopment site in Vancouver, just off Main Street along East 15th Avenue, currently improved with the Bethlehem Lutheran Church (BLC) and a single family home. The site is rectangular in shape totaling ~ 28,400 SQ FT with RM-4 zoning designation which allows for a conditional 1.45 FSR (depending on form of development).
The Bethlehem Lutheran Church is prepared to look at various options when considering the sale of their property. Preference will be given to a developer who will entertain rebuilding a new 2-storey church for the benefit of BLC of approximately 7000 SQ FT (~ 3,500 SQ FT floor plate) on the existing site. However, BLC will also consider selling the property “as is” and relocating to a different site.
