Blossoms in the West End

Subdivision

Subdivision generally refers to the division of land into two or more parcels.

However, it can also include:

  • Consolidation of two or more parcels into a single site.
  • Adjustment of an existing property line.
  • Dedication of land for road or lane purposes.
  • Volumetric subdivisions to create air space parcels.

Strata or condominium ownership

Strata title property is a form of ownership in which a property owner owns their individual unit, plus a share of the common areas of the site, or common property.

Residential, commercial, industrial, and other types of buildings may be subdivided by way of a strata plan.

Address changes

The consistent numbering of buildings and suites in Vancouver, together with their street names, helps Emergency response, mail delivery, and the general public find the specific building they're looking for in the city.
