Notice Respecting Zoning Amendment Bylaw

MONDAY, AUGUST 29, 2022 AT 6:00 PM

Meeting held electronically and open to public attendance in Council Chamber, City Hall

Zoning Amendment Bylaw No. 8348, 2022 for 616 and 640 Sixth Street

In accordance with sections 464(2) and 467 of the Local Government Act the Corporation of the City of New Westminster will not hold a public hearing on Zoning Amendment Bylaw No. 8348, 2022. An application has been received to amend Comprehensive Development (616 and 640 Sixth Street) (CD-80) District. The existing zoning permits a 29-storey, mixed-use building consisting of 237 secured market rental and strata units, ground-floor commercial space, and a total FSR of 6.46. A Development Variance Permit was approved in 2020 to convert 100% of permitted units to secured market rental. The amendment proposes to increase the total number of units to 338, and increase FSR to 7.41. All units would be secured market rental, including 10 near-market housing units. The overall building height would remain unchanged, while the podium height would be increased from three to four storeys, and the tower floorplate would be increased from 689 sq. m. to 752.5 sq. m. The total number of proposed underground parking stalls would be decreased from 313 to 271 in exchange for measures that would reduce reliance on private vehicles. Please note that this bylaw is proceeding in order to correct an administrative error associated with Bylaw No. 8348, 2022 which was under Council consideration, and Council has rescinded all readings of Bylaw No. 8348, 2022. There have been no further changes to the proposed development.


From August 18 to 29, 2022, the proposed bylaw and related material are available for inspection at Legislative Services, City Hall 8:30 am to 4:30 pm Monday to Friday, and online at:

City Council will consider giving first, second and third readings to Bylaw No. 8348, 2022 at its meeting on August 29, 2022. The meeting will be open to public attendance and broadcast live on the City’s website. It can be viewed by going to and clicking on the Council meeting in the meeting calendar.
