New TOD Housing Requirements Coming to BC

On Wednesday, the Provincial government announced legislation aimed at delivering more housing units within Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) areas.


Residential and mixed-use buildings, like CityState's application at 2524-2528 St. Johns Street in Port Moody, will be the norm around transit hubs.


Municipalities have until June 30, 2024, to draft updates to their policies and plans to allow for higher densities around SkyTrain stations and bus exchanges.

SkyTrain

20 storeys / 5.00 FAR

201-400 m

12 storeys / 4.00 FAR

401-800 m

8 storeys / 3.00 FAR

Bus Exchanges

Within 200 m

12 storeys / 4.00 FAR

201-400 m

Parking requirements will also be eliminated for residential units, but will remain unchanged for commercial units and people living with disabilities.
