"Let’s talk density in Cedar Cottage. Or lack thereof. In many areas of the city there is a “missing middle” in housing availability, which consists of housing options such as duplexes, town-homes, multiplexes, laneway homes, coach homes and live/work spaces. Action has been taken to address this need with recent focus being in East Vancouver’s Kensington-Cedar Cottage area.
The City of Vancouver has proposed the “Making Room Housing Program” which is set to rezone the Kensington-Cedar Cottage area, thus allowing dwelling options that fit into that “missing middle” sector.
This is great news for people who have outgrown their midrise units, but aren’t yet ready to get into a single detached home. This approach not only offers affordability options and increased housing choices in the Kensington-Cedar Cottage property for sale market, but also encourages more community living which is great for an already community focused neighbourhood.
East Vancouver Remax Realtors see this upcoming rezoning as an excellent move by the city to increase supply and diversity in housing options and also increase opportunity to provide secondary rental housing options by way of new builds with locked off suites, multiplex builds, and laneways or coach homes for sale.
Kensington-Cedar Cottage is soon to be no stranger to density and diversity in housing availability and the Matt Henry Team looks forward to providing more dwelling options for our clients wanting to invest, reside or relocate to this thriving East Vancouver neighbourhood.
