Crofton Manor planning and development study

Wall Group and Revera Living have proposed to redevelop Crofton Manor. The proposal is to amend the existing CD-1 (Comprehensive Development) District to permit a renewed Crofton Manor and the addition of housing and community uses, including public open space. 

The 5.65 acre site currently houses the Crofton Manor seniors’ care facility. This facility is in need of a renewal to better reflect changes in care and to serve its residents. Retention and replacement of the existing seniors facility, with a minimum disruption to residents, is a minimum requirement of any redevelopment of Crofton Manor.

The site is located within the Arbutus Ridge, Kerrisdale, and Shaughnessy (ARKS) community. The ARKS vision calls for additional planning study and community consultation before a rezoning can take place for both seniors housing and for existing CD-1 sites.

Draft planning and development principles

We've proposed draft planning and development principles, including:

  • Minimize disruption to residents during redevelopment and ensure no displacement of Crofton Manor residents
  • Provide a range of housing types, including affordable housing
  • Explore a range of options for site design, height, density, massing, and open space
  • Address views, visual privacy, building separation, and shadowing impacts on neighbours
  • Consider on-site amenities, such as an adult day centre, that can serve the community
  • Provide an on-site public open space 
  • Explore options for small, local-serving retail and commercial space on 41st Avenue
